Early Years Foundation Stage

Hello everyone, whether you are joining us at school or at home, and welcome to another week of learning.  This week we are continuing with the story of The Little Red Hen and working on a new story called Handa's Surprise.  We are practising counting and calculating in maths and working out how many tens and ones in a 2 digit number.  We are learning all about fruit and thinking of ways we can show the Fruit of the Spirit.  Please send in photos for the Gallery of Creatures, we are collecting caterpillars and butterflies from last week or animals from Handa's Surprise with the fruit they ate.
