LSA - Mrs L Ayers
Our Topic for this half term is 'Towers, Tunnels and Turrets'
Through this topic we will explore Welsh myths and legends, focusing on our very own Welsh dragon and how we came to have a dragon on our Flag. We will be visiting Cardiff Castle on 30th January, where Year 2 will be taking part in a 'Dragon's tales' session and learning what it takes to defeat a dragon as a medieval knight!
