A newspaper interview

During a writing lesson we had to get into the role of 3 characters from the story Beowulf (Grendel, King Hrothgar and a warrior). We then took it in turns to role play each of these characters as well as a news reporter. In the story Grendel (a hideous monster) attacks a castle full of innocent warriors. We asked the characters many questions which will form quotes for our very own newspaper articles.

After we conducted interviews with the people involved at King Hrothgar's castle, we used the quotes to write a newspaper article about the carnage Grendel had created during a party in the mead hall. Speaking to each of the characters meant we had lots of information and we could write a detailed newspaper article.
