Our learning

 This half term in maths, we are learning about fractions. Children will learn to find and recognise fractions of objects and amounts.

In art, we practised a variety of techniques such as ripping, tearing, cutting, layering and folding to create a collage.

In science, we investigated a balanced diet, answering the question: Does the school menu provide a balanced diet?
