Welcome back Raccoons!

We hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas and New Year after a very busy Autumn term! This term our topic is How To Train A Dragon. We will be learning about life in medieval castles, the location of castles around the UK, developing our scientific skills and continuing to discuss how the seasons are changing.  In English, we will be writing instructions and stories involving dragons.
