Speaking and listening

Bangabandhu Primary School, London

This illustrated book was created by Year 3 students in Bangabandhu Primary School, London. The students talked about the painting as part of literacy speaking and listening and then made up their own story of 'Saint George and the Dragon'. Groups of children took different parts of the story. The book was completed with their oil pastel illustrations.
