As part of our very exciting topic on dragons Mrs Mackenzie’s friend Dr Hilda Haddock sent us some pictures to look at. The children spent 5 minutes at each table discussing what they thought was real, what could be fake and why, some decided they would like them as pets, we linked the dragons to our pesky class dragon who keeps moving and to Toothless from How to train your dragon.
The conversations were excellent and the language and reciprocity shown by the children was amazing. They all took the time to listen to their friends and took on board each other’s thoughts and opinions. We are using the dragons to inspire us with our watercolour painting, building dragons out of different hinges as well as writing about them. The children have made homes for the dragon using our tuff tray bits as well as changes our fairy garden into a dragon garden.
