Dragon Post - Pen pals!
Our Monday morning story is all about a little boy who wakes up to find a dragon living under his stairs.
He is over the moon...but doesn't know what to do with the dragon. He decides to write to different people and ask for the information he needs.

With the current situation our children have been split up and are missing each other. We chose this book as an introduction to the concept of 'Pen-pals' . The children attending school will get a home learning pen- pal or two!. Then we can get the conversations/letters rolling.
At school or at home......this week all children are invited to join in the activities below.
Our 'Big Question' this week is .... Do you think a dragon would make a good pet? Would you like to have a dragon as a pet?
Talk or write about your ideas.

Read the poem 'Can you see the dragon?' Think about all of the words that describe the dragon. Does it give you a picture in your head of what your dragon might look like?
