This week in English we have been reading the story George and the Dragon by Chris Wormell. The children have then been working really hard to change aspects of the story ready to rewrite it next week. We have thought of a new setting and practised using repetitive language for effect, changed the dragon to make him even more fierce and thought of an even cuter character than the mouse! 



In Mrs Ellis' maths this week we have been thinking about fractions. We began by investigating equal and unequal groups and then moved on to finding half of an object or group of objects. Here is a great video to watch... As part of your home learning it would be great to talk about fractions during meal times. Can you cut the pizza into equal parts? Can you share your orange segments into halves? 

In Mrs Prophet's maths they have been division by sharing. As part of your home learning can you share a packet of sweets by sharing? Can you share 12 sweets between 2? Can you share 12 sweets between 3? Can you share 12 sweets between 4?

Below shows 15 sweets shared between 3 children.

15  ÷ 3 = 5
