In Science we will be learning about light and dark, shade and shadows and how we need light to see.
Our new song in music is The Dragon Song. We will be learning the song and words and will eventually be accompanying the song with musical instruments

This is going to be a very exciting half term. I hope you will continue to support your children in their learning.
