Description of our Dragon
Here’s a description of the dragon that we made.

St Joseph and St Bede Performance Poetry ‘Staying Awake’
We learned and performed one of the poems from Message from the Moon. We really enjoyed the variety of poems and using rhythm and rhyme to enhance our reading. We especially enjoyed using actions to help us to remember the words.
Our Rare Dragon is made up of a combination of individual ideas from our 6 Reading Gladiators. The King would be so desperate to capture our dragon because he is unique. The OLOL Dragon has a colourful body so that he can camouflage in any adventure. He has fire proof claws and his tongue holds fire breathing powers. At the end of his 20 foot ice tail there is an electric sting. His tail also powers him through water. The strong spikes down his back are for protection against any human or beast that tries to cause him danger. His blue and purple wings help him to fly in the moonlight. When he is in extreme danger, he can shrink down to the size of a mouse.

Music for the Bala Mengro
We decided to start our music with a call to the Bala Mengro so we started with our ‘guitars’. Next we started to quicken up our music and Ruby played her collection of instruments. We thought the Bala Mengro would be ready to stamp and dance now so we quickened the beat and made it louder with our homemade shakers. Finally we finished with a slower, quieter tinkling sound made by coins in a clean sock. We had great fun.
The Library at Snarksville
We discussed the description in the book. We then drew it. We decided that if book characters did actually escape from books then they’d cause lots of trouble!
The Secret Railway-We loved it!
We loved all the twists and turns in this book. We loved how Ella and Leo were so different. Leo was the protector. Ella was adventurous. We also loved learning new words and their meanings. Here we looked at the meaning of ‘Scrap’ and came up lots of ideas.
At SJSB we discussed what we already knew about elephants before reading the novel. We then made a PicCollage of our ideas. We even got a tweet back from the author! How exciting!
Don’t Cross the Line
Year 2 have talked to their adults at home about rules. Super thoughts.
Don’t Cross the Line!
We have had lots of fun designing posters with our own rules – some of them would be very difficult to follow!
Don’t Cross the Line
We really enjoyed getting into this book. Here we are writing in speech bubbles about what one of the characters might say next.
St J St B Gladiators looked around school to see which other signs we could find. We talked about how we know what we should or shouldn’t do. We can’t wait to see what the next book is all about!
Would you cross the line?
At SJSB, we discussed where we see caution signs and have been busy thinking what our next book could be called…
The Secret Railway
Our Year 2 Gladiators are totally absorbed in the adventures that take place in this story! We are loving the magic and surprises around every corner!
Believe and achieve as Gladiators!
We have been thinking about following your dreams like Ossiri and how you can achieve anything if you believe in yourself.
We love the Bala Mengro…
…although we are pretty sure he ate the stranger!
We enjoyed making instruments out of recycled materials. Ready to compose our music tomorrow.
Sharing Our Dreams
Fairfield Gladiators enjoyed sharing their dreams in our session today. They also found it interesting to discover what their family members dreams were when they were younger.
In the middle we thought about what Ossirri thought about the Ogre before she met him. On the outside of the outline we thought about what Ossirri thought about the Ogre after she met him. We compared the collections of words.
Emily’s Dragon makes people fall in love
Thinking about the orge
We read the description of the orge from the farmer’s daughter. We drew what we thought he looked like and what we know about him at the moment. We thought about things we could infer from this description too.
