GroveFM’s radio is back with a broadcast from Orinoco class, where the children talk about the news, numeracy and interesting things about them. They also discuss religions and have a debate about whether children should have a voice in which religion they’re brought up into.

A few of the children have made a video to help with addition and substraction. We hope you find it helpful!
