Drama Alive: Beowulf and Warriors Full Day Workshop
Artist led workshop: Drama in KS2, Year 5 and 6
Create the world of Beowulf in your classroom inspired by Rosemary Sutcliffe’s rich text. Using narration and working in role the children will experience the story from the point of view of warriors who follow Beowulf on a journey across the Baltic sea to avenge his father’s allies of a monstrous human eating death shadow called Grendel. Designed to get pupil’s creative juices flowing in preparation to write, this session will help pupils to visualise and inhabit the world so that they can describe events as if they were there, as well as take on the perspective of the narrator.
