There are plenty more where that came from, so read on ....

As everyone knows, 5 out of 4 people struggle to understand fractions, so that's what we aim to sort out in maths over the next 3 weeks. We will start with simplification and equivalence before moving on to ordering and comparing of simple, improper and mixed number fractions. Later we will cover addition and subtraction plus the new territory of multiplication and division of fractions. 

In English we will plan and write an additional bonus chapter of 'There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom' focusing on using commas for a range of purposes and modal verbs to indicate possibility and certainty.

On Friday we will go off timetable to work for the day with Nathan Timothy from the Songwriting Charity. This will be Nathan's 4th visit to Tunstall and if previous experiences are anything to go by, the children will have a brilliant day with a song they have collaboratively written and recorded to prove it!
