This week, we have solved BIDMAS problems and commenced our unit of learning about fractions. Times table knowledge is a must with these.

Having completed our Stibbington recounts last week, we started learning about biographies and autobiographies, identifying features, practising oral biographies, then recording significant events of Winston Churchill’s life.
