Anglo Saxon

5th December 2016
As part of their Reading Week investigation into the legend of Weland the Smith, Yr 5 had a very interesting visitor. Professional actress (and former Hillcrest pupil!), Alice Lamb, came in to talk to them about how legends have been passed down by the oral story-telling tradition.  
 
She recited part of an Anglo Saxon poem in the original language. There's still a lot of Anglo Saxon in the language we use today.  Have a listen and see if you can hear any familiar words!
