Do Dragons Exist?

george and the dragon painting

The children will be listening to stories with dragon characters, such as 'George and the Dragon'. They will also be learning about Chinese New Year through story, arts and crafts and will be creating a dragon dance in P.E. The children will be learning about the features of dragons. Alongside this, the children will be learning about castles and how they are built, as well as what the parts of a castle are called, e.g. turrets, etc. Children will be building castle structures using building blocks, to investigate how to make buildings strong and sturdy.
