St George's Day


Our story begins, like any good fairy tale, with a brave knight looking for good deeds, and an unfortunate princess, tied to a tree as a sacrifice to the local villager-eating dragon...



What should our brave hero do? Save the princess? Rescue the villagers from the evil dragon?



[Enter fire breathing Year 5...!]

St George sees the dragon about the eat the princess, and in true action-hero-movie style, and slow motion of course, he swoops in to save the princess and slay the dragon, who then proceeds to have a terribly dramatic (and protracted!) death!



The princess and St George are then married to celebrate the victory over the dragon and the freedom of the village and they all lived happily ever after...!
