Can’t wait! – Miss Young


CCTV Class 7 8.12.15 from Mrs Atherton on Vimeo.

Miss Young looked at the CCTV and it was incredible! We decided that we wanted to keep our dragon and so we wrote some persuasive letters to Mrs Sarginson

Here is one example:

Dear Mrs Sarginson,
I am writing to try to persuade you to let class 7 keep our dragon. Wouldn’t you love to have a unique, amazing dragon in Hopwood CP School?

We plan to train our dragon to use his fire to cook our school dinners so the dinner lades do not have to cook. Class 7 are good class to keep the pet because we are responsble.

Class 7 are the perfect choise to look after a dragon because we will look after it. We would make sure that it was well looked after and create to a rota for the jobs.

Some people many think that a dragon would be drangerous yet our dragon is trained so he wont bite. The dragon would be great at guarding our school at night time and he or she will mark Miss Young’s books so she doesn’t have to mark them at school.

In conclusion, I think class 7 should be alowed to keep our dragon decause it will guard and protect our precious school. He will play with everyone and be a spectacular mascot for our school.

Yours sincerely,

A very mysterious day…

Today after we came back from play time, we found a mysterious box had been delivered.

Miss Gardner peeked inside and to our amazement… it was a dragon!

“Uh oh,” we thought nervously. “I’m not sure if Mrs Sarginson will let us keep it…”

Mia suggested that we could write persuasive letters to Mrs Sarginson to help convince her to let us keep the dragon as a pet.

Why should Class 7 be allowed to keep the dragon?

How to make a Paper Snowflake

You will need:

  • A piece of paper
  • scissors
  1. Firstly,  make a square piece of paper by cutting off the surplus paper neatly.

2. Secondly, fold the square into a triangle gently.

3. Then, fold it into another triangle.

4. Again, fold another triangle.

5. Next, cut out shapes on the edges of the paper.

6. Only cut a couple of shapes but leave a leave after each shape.

7. After that, unfold your triangles carefully.

8. Finally, you have made a successful snowflake (you could tie a string to it and hand it on your Christmas tree!)
