This week at CNDS we have been reading The Dragon Snatcher by M. P. Robertson.
Douglas the Dragon helped us to foil the evil wizard's plan to steal the very last dragon egg. In return we helped Douglas share his stash of jewels between his new dragon friends. We also made him a treasure hunt from our lovely new loose parts equipment. He had lots of fun sniffing and snuffling to find the treasure before having a lovely roll in the leaves.
We read all about castles and built our own castle like the wizards in the story. We checked it was right by labelling all the parts.
Finally we designed our own dragon. He was soft and kind. He had sharp, pointy teeth. He had an orange tail.
Whew! Douglas has flown back to his nest for a nice, long rest.
