A parcel from India! We were very excited today to receive a parcel all the way from Heritage School, Jammu, India! Last summer term the current Y5's and Y4's completed a 'culture in a box' project which we sent to India. Topics we wrote about included: our country, local area, traditions, food and information about our school. Our parcel from India shares information from the children there about their local area, traditions and culture so that we can compare the two. Their work is beautiful and not only is it in English but also in French, so we have got some translating to do in our French lessons! We are looking forward to exploring what they have sent for us in more ...

Becoming Egyptologists for the day!Last Friday Year 3 visited Weston Park museum in Sheffield to learn more about Ancient Egyptian civilization. The day was split into two parts: taking part in a 'Journey into the Afterlife' workshop and then we took part in an 'Ancient Egypt trail' around the museum. The children were surprised to see two resident mummies, which were bought by the museum for just £12 some years ago! Both of these mummies were taken over the road to the hospital and were x-rayed to learn more about who they were. In the workshop, the children learnt about the gruesome process of mummification. They used different tools to pull out the brains and other organs. Of course it was only ...

Maths - Set 8 - Converting and Ordering fractionsWe have been looking at ordering fractions with mixed denominators. To be able to order fractions you need to have the same denominator and to do this you need to find the Lowest Common Denominator (LCD) which involves finding the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) for the denominators. All of the denominators will be factors of the LCD!Once the LCD is found you can convert the numerators by multiplying them by the same number that the denominator was multiplied by. Now that all you have found equivalent fractions with the same denominator you can order the fractions in size order!! Other groups took their learning deeper and converted mixed number fractions with different denominators.
