For today’s task, please read the retelling of the legend of King Arthur. We would like you to retell the legend in your own words, presenting it as a comic strip.

Please use the information and links below to find out about Arthur, a great leader who fought against the Angles and Saxons.
There is a debate as to whether King Arthur was real or a myth. When you have read all the information, decide what you believe. Write down why you have made that choice and make sure you back up your argument with evidence.

Imagine that Anglo-Saxons have landed on the beaches of Brancaster in Norfolk, stepping out of their boat and heading ashore. Look at pictures of the deserted beach and discuss how the Saxons might have felt as they viewed this place for the first time. Draw a picture or search online for an image of a Saxon invader, then annotate with speech and thought bubbles to reveal their thoughts on arriving in a new land.
Pictures of beaches and speech bubbles are below. Please send your work to the school office email :)
Tuesday 22nd September
Today we would like you to read the newspaper article on Viking Longships. Once you have read the article, highlight any words that you are unsure of (or write them down if you do not have a printer). Once you have chosen the words, use a dictionary to find out what they mean. Write down the word and its definition. We have been practising this at school :)
Once you have completed those tasks, there are some questions attached to answer about the text.
Once again, if you do not have access to a printer then write the answers down on paper.
Grammar - complete first

Once you have completed this, then you will need to imagine you are on the longship and write a description about the ship. This is very similar to the work we have completed last week on the Fjord.
E.g. As the cold, crashing sea lapped against the ship, I could see...
