Hello Year 5 and 6!
Summer Term 2018
Anglo Saxons and Cornish Legends
The Sword in the Stone by Michael Morgpurgo
Let me tell you about my favourite fable,
It is about knights of the round table,
Arthur was sitting on his throne,
Because he pulled the sword out of the stone,
He had a wife named Guinevere,
And lots of knights who had no fear,
They lived in a castle called Camelot,
With lots of horses that smell a lot,
And fought many battles and were very brave,
And lots of people they did save.
