1. Today we will be describing our Pet Dragon.  We will be using what we learnt last week about adjectives, alliteration and similes and creating atmosphere in our writing to write a really good description.

We will need to use our description planner to see what parts of the dragon we need to describe.  You will be writing a paragraph to describe each of his or her important features.  Remember, you know your pet dragon really well and you want to get us to picture what he or she looks like by using WORDS  to PAINT THE PICTURE!

2. KOREAN DRAGON – this website will show some special features which make dragons frightening.


4.  ORIENTAL DRAGONS – this website describes dragons with lots of similes



What an amazing job you have done on your dragon artworks.  Here we will feature your drawings with your matching description.   Here are the first couple which have been finished.   Well done! 🙂   Now that you know how to create a photostory, you can start using that program at school and at home.

Put up a comment with some positive feedback for what you have heard or seen here…. 🙂  Mrs Veary



This week is Dragon Week.  As you will see, our Dragon is resting on our back wall.  We will be finding out all about dragons in inquiry groups.   To do that, you will need to go to our Fairytales and Middle Ages Blog for the links.



Some descriptions of dragons:

1.  Smaug from “The Hobbit”

Smaug by John Howe

When Bilbo Baggins first encounters Smaug he can hear his snoring – “like the noise of a large pot galloping in the fire, mixed with the rumble of a gigantic tom-cat purring” – but is most of all struck by the reddish glow and heat that Smaug gives off, both of which travel up the passage-way so Smaug is felt long before he is seen. His flames are green and scarlet.[5]

There he lay, a vast red-golden dragon, fast asleep; thrumming came from his jaws and nostrils, and wisps of smoke, but his fires were low in slumber. Beneath him, under all his limbs and his huge coiled tail, and about him on all sides stretching away across the unseen floors, lay countless piles of precious things, gold wrought and unwrought, gems and jewels, and silver red-stained in the ruddy light. Smaug lay, with wings folded like an immeasurable bat, turned partly on one side, so that the hobbit could see his underparts and his long pale belly crusted with gems and fragments of gold from his long lying on his costly bed.
