WEEK COMMENCING 23 MARCH 2015

 

This week we have been discussing the Easter Story and the topic of New Life.

The children have been getting creative and designing wonderful Easter bonnets and posters for the whole school competition.

With the help of Mr Rees, the pupils of both Foundation classes have been planting potatoes and shallots within the Foundation Stage Vegetable Garden.

During numeracy our main focus has been on dividing by 2 (sharing/halving) and revisiting symmetry and repetitive pattern.
