This term the Year One and Two classes will be exploring the world of dragons in their unit called Tell Me a Dragon.
We have lots of great stories to share during our Library lessons and we hope to create some of our own dragons. To start our unit we did a brainstorm of what we already know about dragons. Some of our brainstorm ideas are presented in this Wordle.

What else do you think we could add to our brainstorm about dragons?
Jordyn from 4V has agreed to be our very first guest bloggerand tell us about her visit to the theatre to see the stage production of Mary Poppins. Thank you Jordyn!
Mary Poppins is now out on stage. People from all around Australia are coming here to Melbourne to watch it. My mum, dad, sister and I went to see it at Her Majesty’s Theatre. The two lead roles (Bert and Mary) were sick on the night I went so they had understudies. They have put all types of dancing in the show like jazz and tap. My favourite scene was the supercalifagilisticexpialidocious scene because it was very magical.
Have you been lucky enough to see Mary Poppins too? We’d love to hear your comments.
