Pie has a complete collection of these books for different ages throughout the school. They are amazing for storytelling. without being able to share stories, retell stories and learn how to tell a story, we can not expect children to be writers.

Harry Potter
The scenes from Harry Potter using dragons provide amazing ideas for description aout dragons, the power of dragons and so much more.

How to train your dragon – more fabulous ways of hooking the writer.

We are always trying to move writing on for our boys and finding new ways of hooking them. Following a training day with Pie Corbett on developing non-fiction writing, DRAGONS has certainly been that hook.

Pie shared some amazing resources.

There are some amazing video clips out there to add extra excitement to hooking the writer.

These are fab vid clips of dragon sightings!

Can you imagine children making their own videos like this! Fabulous!
