The class have again been working hard this week in all of their lessons. In maths we have begun to look at fractions and their decimal equivalences. They were shown 2 ways to find a decimal - using a calculator or a place value grid. They also made use of dienes to help them understand how tenths and hundredths related to each other.
In geography we have spent a few weeks finding out about Europe. Today we learnt a little about the EU and what being a part of it means to the people living in the EU. The children used the information they had available to them really well and found that currently there are 28 countries in the EU. Some were surprised to discover that we are part of the EU, others really liked the idea of being able to live or learn in another country in the EU!
