We had a visit from Chloe’s dad recently, who is a postman. He brought in a large Post Office map, which is on our Topic Display board now, of all the local area postcodes.
We learnt that Stroud is GL5, Nailsworth and Minchinhampton are GL6 and Stonehouse is GL10.
We are all learning our addresses because that is important if you need to call 999.
This week we have started designing, building and painting our models of emergency vehicles. We are all at various stages but hope to have them finished, and photographed for our topic books for Monday!
We have used many different sized boxes and used our cutting, gluing and measuring skills to make them look like vehicles. Lots of us are doing army tanks and air ambulances as well as fire engines and police cars.
