P6 Parent Helper Request

Next week is Maths week and we will be taking part in a variety of different math activities throughout the week. On Tuesday 1st October, the class will be visiting the Co Op. If your child could bring in £1, they will have the opportunity to choose how they spend this. This will challenge the children to use a variety of strategies to calculate cost and change and will be encouraged to choose something healthy.

We are looking for 2 helpers to join us on this trip. P6a are timetabled to visit the Co Op at 10am – 10.30am. We will be leaving the classroom just after 9.50 and return for  around 10.40sm. If you are able to assist, please send a note in or inform the office.
