The children in Base 4 have been engaged with some suspense writing linked to their class text Beowulf, an epic poem — turned story — that is leading their history work on Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Enjoy these extracts written from Grendel's viewpoint:

'Sun hid as moon crept out. Fear rose through the murky marshlands. I started to stir. Rodents ran for cover. Birds immediately stopped singing. Only the moon could dare to face me.
I emerged form my lair. My feet squelched across the boggy bayou as I shrithed towards Heorot. My veins full of bloody revenge.'
Lizzie

'Daylight disappeared and night was appearing. The darkness was coming. Something stirred slowly. All was silent. Birds stopped singing and animals ran for shelter so they wouldn't be seen. Only the moon was brave enough to stay out and watch on Heorot.
Suddenly I woke up. I could hear nothing — all was silence. I emerged from my lair across the soggy, damp marshlands across to Heorot.'
Isabella

'As the light faded away the moon rose and watched upon my lair. I stirred in the darkness. Fear rose up into the air. nature realised something was wrong. Only the moon dare to watch. Out of my lair, I stood silently. I lurched across the soppy, wet tussocks on the moorland. as I stomped towards Heorot, evil surged through the darkness of my blood. I arrived at the mouth of Heorot. With my crimson claws I ripped down the door.' Freddie CH
