My Dragon (KS1/KS2) Topic: Myths, Legends, Stories, Dragons, Mythical Beasts [CCLI Song ID: 7181799]
A bouncy reggae song imagining you have a pet dragon.
This is a really popular song with KS1 and KS2. Primary schools have used it for a range of topics as well as a great song for singing assembly.
This is easy to play on guitar - so teachers, get tuned up and download the chord sheet! This is also a good song with basic chords that children can play on ukulele.
I was inspired to write this after seeing a display board at a primary school where the children had 'invented' their own type of dragon. They had drawn their dragon then listed what was special about it - a great activity! One of the children wrote that their dragon ate rainbows! I couldn't resist! (why not try that activity for your myths & legends topic while the children sing this song!)

I teach singing and ukulele in schools where I try out all the songs in the club so you know they will go down a storm with your kids!"
