St George's Day
St George's Day is celebrated on 23rd April each year.
It's a great excuse to enjoy or learn about some of England's customs and traditions, and also to think about knights and castles and dragons!
Could you retell the story of St. George?
Make some St. George's Day biscuits and other ideas.
Make a dragon out of paper plates.
Paint two paper plates each in contrasting colours. Cut one in half to create the dragon’s body and then draw the head, tails and wings onto the other one. Carefully cut these out. With the flat edge of the body at the bottom, use PVA glue to attach the head on the left corner and the tail on the right. For the wings, attach one to the front of the plate on the top curved edge, and the other behind next to it (see image below to see how this should look). Stick on some googly eyes and give your dragon a smiley or fierce mouth. Finally, paint a lolly-pop stick green (or the same colour as the body), and attach this to the bottom of your dragon on the reverse of the plate.
