This week, we have started reading How to Train Your Dragon, which was written by Cressida Cowell. Lots of us have seen the films, but the book is very different.
So far we have met the trainee heroes, who have taken part in their first test as part of their Dragon Initiation Test. Hiccup, the future chief of the tribe, isn’t particularly hero-like, and often gets pushed out of the way for his cousin, Snotlout, to take over.
Today, we had the chance to design our own Dragon. Dragons are very important to the people of Berk, as they use them in battle but also for hunting and to help with jobs. We thought of adventurous adjectives to use in noun phrases to describe our dragons. Later in the week and next week, we are going to create pages for Viking Dragons and their eggs.
