Notes for this week

 

Tuesday we start our forest school sessions. We ask that children have clothing that covers legs and arms due to brambles etc.   You may wish to bring in a change of shoes as well, depending on the weather.

 

If your child needs to change, please put the clothing in a bag. We will have time before the session. 

 

Please note: if your child is wearing school uniform jumpers/cardigans and trousers they will not need to get changed.

In Maths, we will be counting objects to 100, representing numbers and partitioning numbers into 10s and 1s.
