Year 4 Class Assembly

Posted on October 12 2017

Dragons were the order of the day and they confidently shared the exploits of their fiery visitors with the rest of the school, re-telling the discovery of the dragon's egg and our contact with Professor Aegon Snow, Dragonologist in the Cryptozoology Dept at The University of Manchester.

We have been thinking about non-chronological reports in English this half-term. Using Pie Corbett's ‘Talk for Writing’ technique, which immerses children in good models of the text type, they had learned a non-chronological dragon report off by heart. They performed a superb re-telling of the report, with actions, for their appreciative audience, and read out some incredibly creative excerpts of their own work on Thunder Dragons, which had been inspired by the original text.

The audience was also treated to poetry, art work (take a look at just a few examples of the watercolour 'Dragon Eyes' from our talented artists below), and a spirited rendition of 'Just Like a Roman' from our history topic...Did you know that the Roman cavalry carried a dragon ('draco') banner on a pole?  Did you also know that Roman generals sometimes blamed failures in overseas battles on dragon attacks?! The Romans were nearly as creative as our fantastic Year 4s!

Well done to all of the children for performing with such enthusiasm and maturity!
