Next week

Next week we will be doing a variety of Easter activities. We will be visiting church on Wednesday, as well as a privilege treat for those children who have been awarded privilege.

In maths we will be continuing to add a single digit number to bridge ten. The children have been finding this tricky and we have been using cubes and number lines for support. 

This video gives a good explanation of bridging.
