# Numeracy Day – Open Afternoon!

Parents, carers and friends joined us in class this afternoon to share what we have been learning in Numeracy and Maths. They also took part in some of our numeracy and maths activities.

Even more fun was to be had in the assembly hall, with special problem solving challenges.

After using all that brain power, our visitors really needed some refreshments, luckily Mrs Malcolm and Mrs Phillips were on hand with a supply of much needed tea, coffee and biscuits.

We hope all our visitors had a great time learning with us!

Many more photos to follow! Keep checking for updates from class cameras.
