This we in Maths we have continued to look at fractions. We have revisited how to add and subtract fractions- including mixed numbers and order fractions.
For our learning in history, we have been finding out about World War II and exploring our BIG question: How did WW2 affect Britain?
It began with finding out - who? when? where? why?
We then learnt about the sacrifices that were made during WW2 and what life was like at home here in Britain.
Design & Technology - we have been practising our sewing skills ready to design and make our very own tote bags!
