What a great afternoon! It started when the team from Bede's World came and showed us the weapons and armour used by people in the 7th and 8th Century. We decided we prefer living in the 21st Century as the chainmail and swords were extremely heavy and took a lot of energy to hold and wear. We then listened to the story of Beowulf, with the evil Grendel - we all admitted that Jaynie was the perfect person to play this role. The afternoon ended with quil writing, great in our classroom in the warnth, we're not so sure if we would have been as comfortable at 5am in freezing cold monstery.
