Reception children in Red Class at Christ Church Primary, Cressage came to school to find evidence of a dragon disturbance! Scorched paper and material, magical eggs laid in the outdoor area, and a letter of instruction left the children wondering how exactly you would go about hatching a dragon’s egg.
Head Tracey Cansdale explained, “The children did some investigating and decided to keep the eggs warm and see what happened; in the meantime, they wrote an exciting recount of their activities.
“Alongside the best in the traditional approaches to teaching, we know that when children’s curiosity is engaged, they’ll be keen to read, write and find out more about our wonderful world. That curiosity might be sparked by dragon’s eggs in Reception or watching extracts of Blue Planet II in Year 6!”
