Beowulf Literacy Pack (Anglo-Saxons)

The Beowulf Literacy Pack contains a complete unit of work for Year 3/Year 4, with full lesson plans and pupil resources based on the Anglo-Saxon story of Beowulf. This pack is based on the version of Beowulf by Rob Lloyd Jones (Usborne Young Reading). There are other versions of Beowulf available for children, but this edition is most suitable for Lower Key Stage 2 and the work in this pack refers directly to the Usborne text. This ten-lesson unit of work is based on the 2014 National Curriculum for Year 3 and 4. Many schools choose to use this text alongside the Anglo Saxon history topic, although the plans are also designed to work as a standalone unit if required. The ten lessons in this unit aim to give children the opportunity to read the whole story of Beowulf and to write their own hero myth based on the text. In the first week, pupils will engage imaginatively with the story of Beowulf through drama, discussion and a series of creative activities based on the text. They will become familiar with the structure of the story and the literary conventions of hero myths. There is also a SPAG focus on using powerful verbs, expanding noun phrases, using superlatives and placing commas in lists. Pupils will also have the opportunity to develop their inference skills. In the second week, pupils will use drama to develop ideas and extend their vocabulary. They will then plan their own hero myth and have the opportunity to draft and edit their stories before presenting them to an audience. The literacy objectives covered in this unit are: To create a mythical character To use superlatives To describe contrasting settings To use ‘power-of-3’ to expand noun phrases To use powerful verbs To draw inferences from details in a text To use ‘show-not-tell’ as a writing technique To describe how tension builds in a story structure To create tension in my writing To prepare a group performance To identify conventions in mythical literature To make a plan for my writing To write my own hero myth To find words in a dictionary To organise paragraphs around a theme To edit and evaluate my writing To present my story to an audience
