Naming the dragons

Social media is a wonderful way to stay connected to things that are happening beyond our school walls.  We can learn from other people and share our learning too.  We (our teachers) saw a tweet from our friends at Museum Victoria (@mvTeachers). 

They wanted community help in naming the three Gippsland dragons. 

So we put our thinking caps on and completed the online forms ....

and waited .... and wondered

and then we finally heard that some of our suggestions had been accepted !

We are very excited ! 

Lucas said, " I was surprised and shocked that "Bubbles" was chosen. It was such a great moment.

Ava added, "I was so excited when I heard the name "Spike" announced! I feel happy that I have named her.

Eva agreed, "It was so surprising to hear the name Mohawk called out. I think it suited her because of the spikes on her neck!"
