Kenning Poems

This week we have been learning about kenning poems. Kennings were first used in Anglo-Saxon and Norse poetry. In a kenning, an object is described in a two-word phrase, such as 'whale-road' for 'sea'. 

Here are some of our kenning poems. Can you guess what they are about?

This week we have been creating Anglo-Saxon shields. The children thought carefully about their designs and then selected the materials to create them.

Well done Year 4 they all look amazing!
