They have heard many stories throughout the week, some read by Secret Story tellers.

On Wednesday the children dressed up as favourite book characters and attended a special assembly where they were entertained by the teachers who acted out an adapted version of The Jolly Postman.

In maths, the children have been using the language of ‘more than’, ‘less than’ and ‘equal to’ to describe the relationship between numbers.
