Infant - Weekly Email - Friday 17th March

Dear Parents,

It was lovely to see all of our visitors in school this morning for our Family Day and we hope you all enjoyed coming! Thank you to our wonderful PTA for running the cafe.
We had a great Red Nose day and have managed to raise in excess of £107 for this wonderful charity. Thank you for your support. I hope the children enjoyed the day – they certainly looked the part in their red clothes!
Invitation for a farm visit for school families
The Swerling family would like to invite children and families from Chalfont St Giles Infant School to Upper Bottom House Farm this Saturday 18th March to watch live lambing and calving. Pop up anytime between 10-4, wear wellies and go and watch some baby animals being born, you will get a tour and talk from Simon the farmer and a chance to feed some animals too.
Maths Videos
Following the meeting with the Parent Reps last week we are sharing some of the Maths resources available on our website. Maths, and the way it is taught, has changed significantly since we were at school and many of the methods and steps we use to help teach the children may be different to what we remember from our own education. On the school website there is a wealth of information about how we teach Maths and also some excellent videos that explain each step of how we teach addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. These can be found at:
We hope these are useful.
