Where have all the dragons gone?


Following Mrs Hiscocks' traumatic ordeal of her dragon sighting during the Easter holiday, Middle School are going to spend term 5 investigating where he came from!
Our topic is going to be geography based, as we explore a local study of Melksham, trying to decide the best environment for dragons to live in.
We will continue to work hard on our writing this term, beginning with our very own news paper reports about the dragon invasion on our school.
Already this term, we have learnt lots about the different types of dragons from around the world during our guided reading sessions. We have even learnt how to look after a baby dragon and how best to hatch a dragon egg!
