It’s World Book Day on Thursday – don’t forget to come dressed as a book character if you can.
Year 6 have been learning all about dividing fractions by whole numbers. Using cake, we explored how we could cut our remaining pieces (3/4) in order to give each person an equal part. This activity helped the children to understand why their formal algorithm works.
We knew that 3/4 divided by 4 = 3/16. But now we understand why!
Have a look at our explanations of 4/5 divided by 3 too. 🙂
In January, we were very lucky to have Ann-Marie from The Red Cross visit our school to run two workshops. During our first session, we learned all about ‘staying alive’ – we discussed lots of different scenarios where we may be able to (safely) offer first aid or call for help.
In our second session, we discussed the many challenges that refugees face when starting a new life in a new country. I was very impressed by the mature responses of my group.
Thank you for sharing it with us Ben!
