All shapes and sizes!

This week in P2 we have been learning more about 2D shapes and 3D objects, and odd and even numbers. If you see some numbers while you are out and about this weekend, have a chat about whether they are odd or even.

We really enjoyed our community walk. Thanks so much to those parents who offered to come with us. We really appreciate it, and look forward to another excursion soon.

Parents night appointments have gone out today. If need to reschedule, please let me know.

Learning journals have also gone home today. Please have a look together with your child. Please return these on Monday 1st October (this coming Monday).

Your child will also have a Christmas card design in their red folders. If you wish to place an order, please complete the order form and send the money in no later than Friday 5th October.
