During our English lessons this term, Year 5 have been looking at the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. We began by researching the life of King Arthur, discovering more about the mighty Excalibur and how he was betrayed by those closest to him. We created fact files to display this information.

Next, we moved onto looking at action scenes in these legends, reading lots of examples and watching clips from BBC’s Merlin to help us to visualise these spectacles. After collaborating on an action scene as a class, Year 5 picked their favourite knight and planned a quest for them to undertake before coming face-to-face with an evil foe. Let battle commence!
