Day 5 of the Bake Off- Showstoppers!

On Day 5, our parents and families brought their amazing showstoppers into Nursery for the children to taste.  We couldn’t believe how many cakes and bakes we had!  Our parents and children had been extremely busy at home practising their bake off skills.

Here are a few of our showstoppers…








We would like to say a big thank you to all the families that supported us and took the time to create their Bake Off showstopper!

Marvellous Maths

Class 10 continued to work hard on their Maths last week. We were looking at subtraction strategies and applying these to missing number box work and word problems. The children coped really well with the different calculations and were successful at subtracting 4 digit numbers.
