Dragon, by Mrs Nolan
Date: 3rd Aug 2016 @ 1:10pm
The story of Princess Poppy's quest for a dragon. Her villainous suitor, Arkamir, has killed the only dragon in the Kingdom of Freenia. As the local food chain falls into chaos without its top predator, Poppy sets off to find another dragon.
Arkamir tries to foil her quest by sending his incompetent servants, Rogil and Murk, in pursuit.
Along the way Poppy meets new friends - a Dragonologist, a Gatekeeper and a Wizard's apprentice. With the help of the mysterious Piper, Poppy escapes from the sinister Swampbeasts, outwits Arkamir, frees the dragon Firehawk from captivity and returns home triumphant.
Well done to our KS2 children who took part in the production of 'Dragon'
You all worked so hard and with such enthusiasm. We were so proud of you and enjoyed it so much. A big thank you to you all.

Outdoor Education is widely acknowledged as making a significant contribution to the development of young people. It can help develop self-esteem, communication skills, teamwork, cooperation, foster a sense of achievement and potentially a lifelong interest in a healthy activity.
"Young people of all ages benefit from real life 'hands on' experiences; when they can see, hear, touch and explore the world around them and have opportunities to experience challenge and adventure.

Pond dipping - The children worked in small groups collecting pond creatures and recording what they found. We then studied them in more depth on a big screen through a goose necked camera.
Dragonfly Workshop We looked closely into the life cycle of Dragon and Damselflies. The children made a dragonfly on a stick to take home.
Newt workshop We were given a unique opportunity to get ‘close up’ with a great crested newt as we were allowed to handle them carefully.
Minibeast Hunting – Using the farmland at Bickley Hall Farm the children went on a Minibeast Hunt. They searched the grassland, hedges and trees using demonstrated collection techniques.
Thank you to Cheshire Wildlife Trust for a truly wonderful day.
