‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term A

Week 7

Well done for working so hard this half term!

The children have continued to work hard this week. On Monday they have had a lot of fun making potions and toasting marshmallows on the fire in the Bushcraft area. In Maths we have been using a number line to add. The children have been shown how to access Seesaw.  Each week homework will be posted onto Seesaw and work for those who need to self isolate. The children have brought home their Seesaw logins .
Have a great week off and I look forward to hearing all of your holiday news when you return.

Thank you for your support and sending your child in their PE kit on Wednesday.  The children had a lot of fun learning skills in football with the coaches.
