Hare Moonwood Class (Year 3)

Miss Smith  |  Teaching assistant: Mrs Waters 

About Hare Moonwood 

Our Year 3 children are taught in Hare Moonwood Class by Miss Smith and our teaching assistant is Mrs Waters.

Moonwood was a talking hare who lived in the sixth century, during the Age of Conquest. He lived under the Great Waterfall in the west of Narnia. His hearing was so sensitive, that he could hear a whispered conversation in Cair Paravel above the roar of the waterfall.  You can read about Moonwood in the book, 'The Last Battle'.
