Year 5 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 5!
Miss Toft and Mrs McFetridge
Welcome back to the Spring Term 2022
Our text this term is 'Errand' by Leo LaFleur.
In this fable-like graphic novel, a young boy hurries to deliver a package - to an unusual and terrifying woman who lives deep within the sinister Whispering Woods.
On the way, he must face his fears in the darkness of the forest. He passes the mystical wolves of the deep caves, slips by murderous spiders, feels the shaking of the giant as it snores, and even encounters a glimmer of hope... but what awaits him at the woman's hut?
''You can't remember how you became the errand boy of a suspected witch... you can only remember being desperate."
Are you brave enough to read it?
