Zog Activity Trail - Thursday 17 January 2019 to Tuesday 31 December 2019

Zog is a loveable, if somewhat clumsy dragon at Dragon School who is always striving to win a golden star. Zog is learning lots of essential dragon skills at school including flying, roaring, breathing fire and capturing princesses!

Children are invited to step into the forest classroom to learn lessons just like Zog, including how animals fly, what sounds they make and how they catch their prey!

As well as winning gold stars along the self-led trail, there will be reveal panels which have a hidden image that children can find using a coloured lens in their activity pack

 Available to buy for just £3 the activity pack will also include a Zog mask, activity sheets a pencil and stickers.
