The children enjoyed takíng part lots of maths related field work for geography week. They explored the distance between trees using trundle wheels and by counting steps. They also used shape finders to count different natural materials in the playground. We measured the size of trees using our arms too!
We loved our trip to the library. The children were so well behaved and very sensible on the way and when we got there. All of the Early Years Staff were incredibly proud.
