It’s finally here! The very last episode of Through the Dragon’s Eye, the TV show that’s a reading lesson in disguise. It’s so fun, you don’t even know that you’re learning!
Obviously, I hope you have watched every episode of TTDE up until now. It all started with this blog post where I asked you to watch episode one.
Since then, you’ve been looking out for the acronym TTDE to find episodes! In episode two they travelled to Widge, in episode three Boris got stuck in a quagmire and in episode four Amanda found the first missing veeton in the tree.
However in episode five there was a big problem, as the horrible Charn tried to ruin everything by turning Pelamar into an evil place. In episode six Jenny asked Maurice to knit a scarf with a message to warn the others. Then in episode seven, Gorwen flew back to confront Charn. Next there was a great battle and Gorwen won! However he used up lots of energy in the battle, and now only the life force from the veetacore can save him. In episode nine, Rodey went down the hole to find the veetarod, which Scott then used to find the last missing veeton. Will he be able to get it back in time to save Gorwen? Let’s find out!
Well done! You’ve made it to the end. Through the Dragon’s Eye is a story written by Christopher and Christine Russell. It was first shown on TV in 1989, which is three years before Mr Morgan was born. Now I want you to write a book review for this story, using a sheet we have used before in our reading lessons.
Please answer every question in as much detail as possible. When writing a list of characters, remember to use commas. You also need to write the word ‘and’ between the final two characters in order to finish your list. Take care with your drawing and use colour.
Email me your finished book review to firstname.lastname@example.org to win a merit.

Tomorrow is the picnic on the park event of which you are all invited. If you come, you will also see me! Remember it’s perfectly OK if you can’t come. I will be teaching you again in September and I will look forward to seeing you and teaching you again.
In the comments, I want you to imagine you are having a picnic in Pelamar. Make me a list of what you would pack for your picnic. Just like the list in your book review, I want you to use commas. I also want you to write the word ‘and’ between the last two nouns in your list. Look at my example to help you.
Make sure you pack your picnic carefully. You don’t want any Widgets to steal your food or drinks!
Don’t forget there will still be blog posts on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week for Year 2. Tomorrow there is a giant quiz to complete!
