This week's activities are based around the Julia Donaldson story Zog. Have a look below at the tasks we would like you to try this week. Don't forget to check the maths section for the White Rose math tasks linked to this text too. 


If you don't have the book to read at home click on the link below to hear the story being read.

Task 1

When I grow up 

In the story Zog, the Princess dreams of being something else when she grows up. She wants to be a doctor. Zog wants to be the best dragon he can be.


Can you think of a dream yourself for when you grow up? There are so many things you could choose from.

What would you want to be and why?


Draw a picture of you as what you want to be. Then you could write your own short sentence about what you want to be or with a grown ups help you could fill in your idea at the end of the sentence below:


When I grow up I want to be a ____________.


Challenge- Can you also write about why you want to be that when you are older? When I grow up I want to be a ________ because ______________.


Task 2


At Arnold Mill we love to praise the children for working hard and trying their best. We celebrate their achievements by giving stars, stickers and certificates to say well done. Can you remember a time when you were given a certificate that made you feel happy and proud? What did you get it for?


In the story, Zog is trying his best in Dragon school to get a gold star. He tries his hardest and practises what he is learning to get better at it. Can you remember what things in school he had to learn and practise? His teacher and friends are so proud of him when he earns a gold star. 

For this task, we would like you to make Zog a certificate to say well done. You can use this template below or create your own certificate for Zog. Think about what colours you would like to use and if you would like to add any drawings e.g. stars or smiley faces.

Don’t forget to write about what he has done to earn his certificate.
