Adding in math

Larch class are beginning to learn how to add numbers together using column addition. Today we used diennes and place value cards to support our understanding as to how numbers can be placed in a grid. Here are some pictures of us doing our work. 

Beech Class meet some real life heroes! 

Since our topic this term is all about ‘people who help us’, we were very lucky to have a visit from some local firefighters. We got to learn all about the different equipment they use everyday and how they use it to save lives. 


We even got to go inside the fire engine and experience what it must be like to be a firefighter racing to an emergency. Even Mrs Franks and  Miss Watson got to have a turn!

As a final goodbye, the firefighters beeped the horn and flashed the sirens for us. It was so loud but really exciting too. 

We can’t wait to meet more amazing ‘people who help us’ soon. 

Magic Potions!

This week Apple nursery have been reading Room on the Broom and making magic potions. We have used our water play to learn about when a container is full, empty or half-full and the children have enjoyed exploring and using this language when making their potions as part of our Abracadabra topic.
