“It’s a great opportunity to work as a team.”

Dragon Catching June 2017 Mehefin 2017

IMG_6577Due to the recent soaring temperatures, there has been an increase in the number of speckled egg shells found all around Wales. 5P and 6J have been busy planning how to catch the culprits and have tried to get their hands on a real life baby dragon!

We began by planning suitable traps and locations to catch the dragon in. Following this, we used our literacy skills to write instructions for other people who would like to recreate our traps.

We had great fun setting our traps and night vision camera to try to catch a glimpse of the creature.

This project has given us the opportunity to use our numeracy skills to work out how to care for the dragon and to learn all about adaptation for environments. We are now busy working on green screen news reports.

UPDATE: Take a look at our display of our fantastic work!
