Beautifully illustrated, this imaginative resource is based on Rosemary Sutcliff’s classic children’s novel, which retells the story of Beowulf. The essence of each chapter in the novel is skilfully used as a focus for a grammatical theme, (sentences, nouns, verbs, speech marks and so on), and these themes are then illustrated and brought to life through a series of imaginative and compelling projects including:
- Making a model of a Viking helmet and a longboat
- Performing and story telling (including 12 character masks)
- Memory and board games
- Writing in runes and solving Celtic riddles
The activities are differentiated to give children of all abilities an exciting introduction to the study of English literature with a wealth of great photocopiable resources. The Dragonslayer Pack comes in a ring binder complete with teacher’s notes and record sheets.
‘This is a high quality English resource that succeeds on every level’.
