Dragons class are the oldest children at the Yogi art centre. In this class our children start taking on larger responsibilities for the school, their learning and creativity. Naturally the children in this class are moving towards more work book lessons. They are taught core subjects daily- english maths and reading, but afternoons are spent on creative projects, where they engage in design technology, wood work and environmental projects. The afternoon are mainly by focused on their project book learning. This is where they can use the theme to develop and study a topic which is of interest to them personally. They have the opportunity to do this individually, with a pair or in a group.
