This term our topic is Narnia! Please find a parent topic leaflet and medium term planning document below ,but this may change depending on other activities or events that happen throughout the term. Lots of exciting things to come through the spring term such as a visit to the secondary school library and world book day fun and games. We have also made bands and have started writing our own songs  - this has been done through singing strategy lessons (funded by SASMA) and we will also be taking part in Clayesmore's Choral day in February.

We visited the library at Shaftesbury School this week. We were shown around and had time to choose a book and quiet read. It was a very nice morning!

In science we have been exploring air resistance through asking the question: Does the size of a parachute affect how effective it is? The children have planned their experiment and have begun to test their theories.
