In Year 4/5 we have started a new Maths topic all about fractions. To help with our visual understanding of fractions, and particularly equivalent fractions, we created our own fraction walls. Using our understanding of division to help calculate equal parts, we then used our measuring skills to identify different fractions. We even managed to have some fun at the same time!
To coincide with World Book Day on March 2nd, children in Year 4/5 have completed a homework project all about their favourite authors. Some chose to complete a poster; others a PowerPoint presentation and some planned a group presentation to share to the class. We found out lots of exciting things about authors, such as Roald Dahl (Did you know he did a lot of his writing in a shed?) and David Walliams (who has raised thousands of pounds for charity swimming the Thames and the English Channel). A super effort, Year 4/5! Well done!

Hello my name is Jonathan.
Here is why I recommend Grid Club for the school.
Grid Club helps your child understand their subject they’re learning over the terms, so they could get better at maths, English, history, music, geography and so on.
What a day we had in the Durham countryside! Huge thanks to Mr and Mrs Greenwell for their continued generosity in allowing us to ramble across their land!
The weather failed to dampen our spirits and there were smiles and giggles all round – what a wonderful way to raise money for such a good cause!
