What we’ve been up to this week:

Another busy week in Horse Chestnut class! We have been very busy beginning to map out of play, Hoodwinked. In the classroom, the children worked hard to write some persuasive writing to persuade someone to visit Egypt and in Maths we have begun to look at money, looking at the different coins. We enjoyed the sunny weather out in the school garden and even did some drawing in the sun in RE. We finsihed off the week with fun in the kitchen, making jam tarts.
