In English this term, we are learning the story of Kassim and the Greedy Dragon. Today, we have been outside to act the story out! Here is a copy of our story. Can you tell which bits we are showing in the pictures?
Kassim and the Greedy Dragon
Once upon a time, there was a poor boy called Kassim who lived on the edge of a dark forest.
Early one frosty morning, he woke up and began the walk to school. However, his mummy warned him... “Beware of the ferocious dragon!”
He walked and he walked and he walked, jiggety-jog, jiggety-jog, jiggety-jog, until he came to a damp, dark cave.
The first time Kassim looked into the cave, he saw dark shadows shivering!
The second time Kassim looked into the cave, he heard heavy footsteps shuffling!
The third time Kassim looked into the cave, he saw a pile of glittering jewels!
A moment later, Kassim crept into the darkness and took not one, not two, but three HUGE diamonds that glowed like firelight! Unfortunately, something else was alive inside the cave! Something VERY large. Something VERY hungry. It was the Ferocious Dragon...with teeth like daggers and claws like knives and jaws of the coldest steel! It shivered in the shadows, shuffled its wings and snorted its fiery breath.
Kassim screamed and then he ran and he ran and he ran, jiggety-jog, jiggety-jog, jiggety-jog, with the dragon shivering and shuffling along behind him, snorting its fiery breath.
Sooner rather than later, Kassim arrived home just in the nick of time with his coat tails singed behind him. In his hand, he held not one, not two, but three ordinary stones. Crime never pays.
