Year 5 were visited by Congleton Fire and Rescue today. We learnt about the dangers of fire; how to escape from a fire; what to do if the room was filled with smoke and how having smoke alarms are crucial. We went in the smoke tent so that we could experience how smoke rises and that we need to keep low to the floor when there is a fire.
Today Year 5 were invited to Eaton Bank for a basketball and trampolining session. The children practised their bouncing, chest pass and shooting skills in basketball. In trampolining, they learnt to do a tuck, straddle and pike as well as seat drops. Some of them even tried front drops.
In Class 3 we have been super busy learning about 3 digit numbers. We know how to add and subtract 3 digit numbers and can place them on a number line. This week we did a physical number line and talked about where the numbers would fit into the number line. We also looked at estimating to help support us with our addition and subtraction.
For example the number 138 is closer to 100 than 200.
