This half term's CHAS

 Week 1: CHAS is going home with Kayla this week for showing such a caring attitude from day one this week. Kayla is so helpful at tidy-up time and always listens at carpet time. She is so polite and kind to everyone. Well done Kayla!



What we've been doing this week

 In maths we have been sorting objects by size and colour. We worked with our partner to make two groups of objects. We had a number matching hunt in our outdoor area. The children then practised their number formation in the sand, great work everyone! 

Wow moments!
