Autumn 1


We've had a fantastic first week in our new Hiccups class getting to know each other and our new routines. All members of staff have been blown away by the maturity of all pupils as they've settled straight into being perfect role models for the rest of the school in UKS2.


We have started reading our class book 'How to Train Your Dragon' where we've been able to analyse in detail the main character Hiccup, along with delving a little deeper into other characters such as Snoutlout, Stoick the Vast and Fishlegs. The How to Train Your Dragon series by Cressida Cowell is one book from a series of 12. So, if you've enjoyed reading this book in school perhaps you could explore the other books in the series. You might want to even listen to the author Cressida Cowell read the books herself by clicking HERE.


Here are the Y5 Hiccups creating some freeze frames from the first few chapters of the book. Can you guess which character they are? What point of the story do you think it is?

This week made a model of the River Nile while we recapped key vocabulary of rivers learnt in Y4 and added labels with key landmarks.

Well Done to all the children who came to the Y5 Basketball competition last night at Forge Valley!
