King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success

Autumn 1 All About Me

Brown bear, Brown bear, What do you see?


Our story map:-


For our whole school topic we shared the story 'Tell me a Dragon'.


We shared the story and had a message from the office telling us that the Mother dragon had lost her eggs and needed our help to find them!

We walked to our forest area and went on a hunt for 3 dragon eggs. We spoke about how we needed to look after them and be quiet so we don't scare them.

We worked together and made a nest for them using sticks, leaves and grass.

The children could hear the baby dragons inside scratching and moving. They were very excited! We decided to take one of the eggs to put in our curiosity cube.




When we arrived to nursery this morning.. we had noticed someone had been in during the night!!!

Who could it be?
