    30 jumps to 100, giving us 70.
    70 + 4 = 74
  • Subtracting using maths frog

Odd Socks Day

Friday 16th November:
Please wear odd socks to school

This Friday, please get your child to wear odd socks to school to celebrate Odd Socks Day.
In our PSHE lessons this week, we will be doing various activities with an ANTI-BULLYING theme of "Choose Respect".

We will be discussing how bullying is a behaviour choice and that we can respectfully disagree with each other. We need to respect every member of our school community, both face to face and online.

Odd Socks Day is an opportunity to have fun, be yourself and spread awareness of core 
anti-bullying messages.

Here is a fun song by Andy (of CBeebies fame) and the Odd Socks to celebrate this occasion:
