English: In English we will be studying the novel by CS Lewis, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.  We have several copies in school to share amongst the children, however it would be very helpful if you have a copy you could bring in for the term please.  As usual, please name the book and these will be kept safely in your child's tray.
