The Building Site๐Ÿ› ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ

On Friday morning we put on our reflective vests and walked up the road to look at the building being constructed at the Diamond. We met Matthew and Robert who very kindly answered all our questions and let us take some photographs. We all had an excellent learning experience.....and a nice walk too!

During Circle Time we talked about our favourite thing to do.

We were looking at all the ways of making 6. We threw 6 beanbags at a hoop and counted how many were inside the hoop and how many were outside the hoop. Both numbers then add up to 6!

Happy Birthday Roald Dahl!

In Year 2 we celebrated Roald Dahl's 100th birthday!
