A package

A package from The Ministry of Magic. 

 

An unusual package arrived in school for Swallow class on Friday. Eager to discover more the children opened it to discover an egg and a letter inside. 

The opened package

A letter from The Ministry of Magic

Sam and Kacey-May read the letter to the class and faciliated a discussion about what it could possibly be. Using clues hidden within the letter, Swallow Class decided it must be a dragon egg.

Reece has been reading The Complete Book of Dragons by Cressida Cowell and advised the class to keep the egg cool. This will prevent it from hatching before we are prepared for its arrival. He also compared the egg to a diagram in the book and suggested it could be Rhinoback or Grimler dragon. 

We have several tasks to complete before it hatches including creating a potion to heal burns.
