Maths: Having spent plenty of time looking at equivalent fractions, we moved on to comparing fractions with different denominators. This was quite tricky at first; we initially used bar models to help us to visualise and then worked out that finding the lowest common multiple was a good way to convert to like fractions.

Topic:  This week  the children were introduced to the story of the Trojan War,  when they were comfortable with the key events they were asked to act out various scenes from the story. Some children chose the role of a Greek, while the others took on the role of a Trojan. The following were the chosen scenes:

1.The Greeks arriving for battle.
2.Men hiding inside a wooden horse while the  Greeks pretend to sail away.
3.The Trojans bringing the horse to the gates.
4.The Greeks climbing out at night and letting the army in.
5.The final battle.

Our attendance this week was 95.2%
