You could conduct a small experiment, plant 2 seeds and choose 1 of the variables (remember that the rest of the variables need to stay the same).

Starter 

Reading  

Read the story below and find any of our words from this week.  

Saint George and the Dragon 

St Georges Day - Everything You Need To Know | Articles & stories

Once upon a time there lived a knight called George.  During his many travels he came across a village.  The villagers who lived there were very unhappy because a dragon that lived in a nearby lake.  The dragon would not allow the villagers to take water.   They tried to distract it by giving it one of their sheep to eat while they collected water.  After some weeks, the greedy dragon wanted more.  They gave it their animals and their gold but it was not enough, and he demanded that they sacrifice a beautiful maiden every day.  The maidens were chosen by lottery.  On the day George arrived, the lot fell on the king’s daughter: she would have to be left by the lake for the dragon to eat.   

When George rode past the lake on his horse, he saw the princess tied up by the lake where the dragon lived.  The dragon raised out of the water with a mighty roar but the brave knight slayed him with his sword.  The princess was saved and the dragon was no more.  The villagers were overjoyed as they could live in peace again.   

Why were the villagers unhappy? 

How did they distract the dragon when they were getting water? 

What impression do you get of George? Explain your answer.   

Watch the story of George and the Dragon https://vimeo.com/102942550

Who was involved?

When did it happen?

Activity 

Imagine you are a news reporter preparing to break the news about George and the dragon.  Write yourself a script to read out explaining what happened.  Use the conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions you have learnt about this week to sequence your writing.  

Remember you need to retell the story of George and the dragon as if you were reading it as a newsperson.
