The dragon and the beanstalk have gone! The dragon wrote to each class to tell them he was going to help children in another school with their writing, so yesterday afternoon the children decided they wanted to send a letter or make things for him to say goodbye. There were beautiful pictures in frames, 3D pop up cards and letters all in a special box decorated by one child.
On Tuesday some burnt leaves appeared and the ideas as to how they got there were hilairious, but my favourite was "well the dragon might have a cold, and used the leaf to blow his nose and fire accidentally came out of his nostrils, and that's how the leaf got burnt!
We have a themed week of dragons next week and book week. I had a lovely time Friday afternoon trying to create the shape of a dragon's tail with some green paper (no card big enough) and some gold card. After a lot of trial and error this is the final result. Can't wait to see the children's reaction on Monday.
