Here Be Dragons!

In Year 5 this term, our topic is Fantastic Beasts! As part of our learning, we have been looking at the book Tell Me a Dragon by Jackie Morris. This books shows us descriptions of various types of dragons and has some fantastic language. After looking at the text, we unpicked a lot of this language and used it to write our own descriptions.


We revised -ing and -ed openers and thought about synonyms for verbs.


After that, we drew our own dragons and then even had the opportunity to make our dragons out of pipe cleaners. We found this tricky, but by using our school values, we were able to persevere and make our very own, unique beasts!

Finally, at the end of the week, we used modelled texts to craft our own descriptions (we hope you like them). We are now very excited to start our instructions learning!
