Year 2 has a visitor for the start of the brand new term – welcome to Buster the Dragon! The children will be using the many themes associated with a dragon as a stimulus for their literacy work. We started this topic by asking the children to brainstorm within small groups, and to try and come up with as many descriptive words as possible that we can associate with dragons. We have built Buster as our class display, and as the term progresses, we will be adding new ideas and words based around Buster to the display.
Our Year 2 dragon topic will conclude and coincide perfectly with St George’s Day. Much of our literacy work will be using the myth of St George to help us with our ideas. A selection of children shares their early thoughts in the podcast below.
