Maths Pre-learning activity (trial)
This week we have been working hard to support the class to understand how to use improper fractions and mixed numbers.
Therefore, we have sent a Key learning Maths sheet to help prepare the children understand how to convert mixed numbers to improper fractions in further detail. This lesson will be taught on Thursday 16th March. We have encouraged the children to read through the questions if they are unable to answer them due to after school commitments . However; children can answer one or two questions if they would like too/have time. These questions can also be completed as their morning activity, please remind them to bring back the activity sheet.
This week we have been learning about Viking Gods and Goddesses.
Why not research a Viking God or Goddess not covered in our lesson and create a poster to share with the class?

On Purple Mash there are various '2do's' to help your child consolidate their learning and how to divide effectively. Please encourage your child to select one '2do' linked to a set times-table/s they need to develop. Please note - there are many '2do's' to choose from. Your child does not need to complete them all.
Thank you for your support.
This week we have been learning how to multiply a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number. The children have been learning how to show their exchanges and use the correct method.
