This half of term with the 6-7 year olds we have been focusing on dragons. There were a few different stages to the work: 

  1. We read some books about dragons together and talked about them (George and the Dragon, The Egg, Show me a Dragon, The Dragon Machine), roughly one a week
  2. We modelled dragons out of clay and painted them
  3. We made houses for our dragons 
  4. We wrote letters to our dragons to ask them to come back when they disappeared
  5. We talked a lot about how we met our dragons; why they went missing; how we got them back. We then made this into a story.
  6. We will edit and finish off our stories next week…

Here are some photos of the students’ work!
