Princess: Oh what a beautiful day and even better as I have a big bag of crisps. Narrator: Near the princess is a very shy dragon who is trying his best to capture her (because that’s what dragons do!) but he is just too shy! She doesn’t notice him as she is so involved eating her crisps. Dragon (making his best dragon noises) plucks up courage and captures the princess, but in a very shy way. Narrator Princess: The Princess started screaming very loudly. Help me! Help me! My crisps they have fallen on the floor!
Narrator: George was riding by on his horse. George: Hey! What’s that? It sounds like a princess in distress!! Oh no! That means I have to go and investigate and i might get hurt. What a problem it is being a knight and frightened of everything! Narrator: George rides into the castle garden. He sees the princess and falls in love immediately, George loves crisps too! George: Oh look what a beautiful princess, I must be in love! And look at that big bag of crisps. But first I have to fight the dragon.... oh no he may hurt me! Narrator: George plucked up all his courage and fought the dragon
Dragon: This is too scary for me I’m off. Narrator: The dragon ran off and was never seen again (he actually went on a course to become a real dragon.) Princess: George: Narrator: What a handsome knight! My hero! Would you like a crisp? Your welcome and Oh yes please, I love crisps. So George married the Princess and they ate lots of crisps together The End

Art Activity Investigating and talking about a Painting The artist Rogier van der Weyden was born in 1400 and died 1464. He lived in Brussels and was a busy artist with many assistants and pupils. This painting is actually quite small, about the size of your hand and was painted with oil paints on to wood. The painting was completed around 1435. There is so much detail in the painting that experts think that the artist used a very fine brush and a magnifying glass to help him.
