Learning Information

This term's topic is
'Dragon Tales'

This project has a Knowledge and Understanding of the World focus and enables children to explore the historical, traditional and fantasy world of castles including the lives of people who lived and worked in them during the Middle Ages. Children should be introduced to experience a range of cultural stories, activities and events that celebrate aspects of Welsh heritage and tradition.

Building on initial starting points during the Engage Stage, your observations will enable you to develop the project flexibly taking account of your children’s ideas and interests. During the Innovate Stage children should be encouraged to think creatively applying their previous experiences, skills and understanding to create imaginative stories and role-play when receiving an old scorched map from a friendly dragon.

Class Announcements

The children had a fabulous day dressing up on our 'Dragon Tales Dressing up Day'. There were a lot of fun and games throughout the day, we modelled our outfits to the whole school during assembly time and even the Queen of Hearts turned up!

Thank you to our wonderful parents for supporting this activity. You are all stars!!!


Mrs Perkins has enjoyed looking through the wonderful ICT work that the children have completed using the Purplemash website this term. Lots of castle, knights and dragons.
The children will be decorating the class castle with their own flag. A 2do has been set on Purplemash. The children just log in, click on 'My 2dos' and follow the link for the homework. If your child needs their log in again, please ask Mrs Perkins at the end of the school day.
Don't forget to explore the rest of the site for lots of fun activities to support your child's learning.  
Happy surfing!!!!!
