The Junkyard Dragon
We have based all our learning around the fabulous story 'The Junkyard Dragon' this week. The week began with the children taking on the role of dragon keepers, learning about subtraction as the dragons ate their food.
On Wednesday the children worked their socks off learning not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4 but 5 tricky words - he, me, we, she and be and used them in some incredible writing that is displayed in the classroom all about the story. Their growing confidence with writing already is fantastic!
On Thursday we joined Orange Class for our 'Friendly Thursday' morning and while we were in there, Daisy (the little girl from the story 'The Junkyard Dragon') phoned Mrs Spence. Luckily we were able to put her phone onto loud speaker so we could all hear what Daisy was saying. She was amazing and told us all about the dragons she has made from spaghetti, broccoli, baked beans, bacon and junk materials. She thought the children might like to design their own dragons, labelling their pictures with the materials they wanted to use. We had some fabulous designs with very carefully thought through materials and wonderful models made following the designs. The children really wowed us and many, many other parents looking around on Open Day as they confidently buzzed with excitement explaining exactly what they were doing. They made us all very proud. Daisy called back at the end of the day to see how the children had got on and was very impressed with everything they told her. Bailey, Ruby and Poppy all spoke to her on the phone too!
