Tell me a dragon

We read a beautiful picture book in Robins this week called ‘Tell Me a Dragon’ by Jackie Morris. The stunning illustrations inspired many budding artists to create their own air, water or fire dragons. The children demonstrated their powerful imaginations in their descriptions of their dragon and how it moves. Today is Chinese New Year which inspired my choice of book and became the theme for our topic work this week. Robins have learnt some interesting facts about the celebration, tried dragon dancing, used chopsticks and made paper decorations. In Maths the children have been practising ordering teen numbers and finding one more and one less and working hard on their number formation.
