Tell Me a Dragon

You or your children might already have come across 'Tell me a dragon' (suitable for children aged between 4 - 11).  It shows a whole range of activities - not just English, but art and nature activities that you can do in the garden or on a nature walk. Children can collect pebbles and decorate them as dragon eggs, then build 'nests' outside for the pebbles to sit in. English wise they can design their own dragon and write an explanation text etc. 

If you click here there are some resources, including some ready-made teachers notes that you can get on line also.

Here are additional ideas linked to dragons in general, if interested.
