Planning A Christmas Party

This week in maths we have used our problem solving skills, which has required us to use all 4 operations. We have calculated fractions and percentages and worked out the total budget of our party, to do that we have calculated the total cost of food, entertainment and ticket prices.

 

Comparing Fractions

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.

Planting Daffodil Bulb

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.
