We have been finding 1 more, 1 less, 10 more and 10 less in Maths - we are getting really good! We also revisited tens and ones for 2-digit numbers. In English, we have been reading Handa's Surprise, describing the setting and characters, and will be soon writing our own version!

Topic Overview - Africa
The Pumas children will be enjoying a number of Forest Schools sessions across the year. These dates are in the calendar and newsletter.
On these days, please ensure that your child has two pairs of trousers, two pairs of socks, and multiple layers for their top half. They also require wellies, hat and scarf. They will be outside for the whole morning or whole afternoon so need to be warm enough to get the most out of the sessions.
We had a great time at Forest Schools, thank you for sending us in lots of warm clothes!
We look forward to our next sessions in Summer Term!
