This afternoon, we have followed a recipe to bake shortbread biscuits. To follow the recipe, we need to follow the instructions in chronological order. But, before we followed the recipe, we needed to use our maths skills to measure and weigh the ingredients. We can’t wait to try out our biscuits tomorrow!

Today in maths we have been comparing fractions with related denominators. First we had to find the lowest common multiple , we did this by using our times tables. We found the equivalent fraction and proved this by showing our workings. The rule you always have to remember is whatever you do to the demonitor you must always do to the numerator.
Today we were preparing ourselves for our christmas play. Together as a school we worked through the words of each songs, making sure we were confident within singing all the words , loud and clear.

Today Class 8 have been planting daffodil bulbs, we have planted 27 for our whole class. These will have grown in time for next spring. We have talked about how the water and sunlight helps the plants to grow and the children spoke about the green house being the best place for the plants to grow as they are protected from the frost and ice we may have over the winter.
