Word Ladders

Today year 5 climbed another step on the ladder to success!

We have been learning about the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf. Before writing our own character descriptions, in the style of the author, we challenged ourselves to expand our vocabulary to improve our word choice. We used dictionaries, thesauruses and etymology (where the word came from) to help us. By the end we had all learned at least 3 new words!
