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.

Number line to 1,000

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.
