We have been learning all about Zog this week, and all of the wonderful things he did to become a fully grown dragon.

We have been thinking our school is very different to dragon school, could you design a poster that will make people want to go to dragon school. Remember even dragons use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops!

There is an example below: (Click on Dragon school)

Once you have finished why not try these activities:

  • Can you make a certificate for Zog to go with his golden star?
  • Can you make a poster to teach the dragons about fire safety?
