An amazing amount of money was raised at the Year 4 cake sale the other week - nearly £180! Thank you so much to everyone involved. The majority of the money has gone to funding our class reading text for this term, Anglo-Saxon Boy. There is some left over however and this is likely to go towards subsidising some other fun activities we have lined up for the spring term. This week, the most important thing to remember is that Friday 30th November is an INSET day - please don't come in to school! The staff will be looking at the school values and behaviour policy, amongst other topics. 

This week: 
In Maths we are looking at fractions including finding unit fractions of amounts e.g. 1/3 and non-unit fractions of amounts e.g. 2/3. We will also look at equivalent fractions e.g. 1/2 and 2/4 and adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator.  
Key vocabulary includes: divison, half, quarter, third, fifth, sixth, eighth, tenth, equivalent, non-unit fraction, numerator, denominator.
