Chatty Maths Week 1: Which Path?

World Book Night

In the UK 36% of people don’t regularly read (DCMS, 2015) and this is something we want to change!

World Book Night brings together a powerful collaboration of national partners – publishers, printers, distributors, libraries, booksellers, private donors, trusts and foundations – to inspire more people to read. Thousands of volunteers share their love of reading by giving out books to people in their communities.

Look out for the free books after school on Friday.

Outside Learning in the sun.

Reception have enjoyed learning in the sun. We have planted cress, built a castle, performed a puppet show and enjoyed a lovely game of musical chairs.  The children organised the game of musical chairs and sang songs for the music.  It was great and we learnt how to take turns and not to get upset if we were out.

We are now waiting for the cress seeds to grow.
