Active numeracy

Class Saunders are still focused on our wrong and right enquiry centred around deforestation. We have decided to create a sponsored event in school to raise money for the charity so watch out for letters and sponsor forms coming home soon.

Hopefully we will be able to share this with everyone in our carol service landing.
