January 2019: What is an equivalent fraction?


Equivalent fractions can be really difficult to explain and understand. This week we began looking at them by cutting out some fraction wheels and comparing the sizes of different parts, to find which ones are equal. Try the question below to see if you know your stuff!




January 2019: A postcard from Paris

This week in geography, we got the opportunity to try some traditional English and French foods such as scones, Victoria sponge cakes, croissants and madeleines. They were delicious! After this, we pretended we had gone on holiday to either London or Paris and wrote a postcard home detailing the cuisine we had experienced! We hope you enjoy reading them.
