Mini Mukker Killer Kilometre

Well done to all the children who took part in the Mini Mukker Killer Kilometre today! Everyone got very wet and muddy in order to raise money for Comic Relief. What an incredible day! 

Thanks to all the parents and family members who came along to support the event and to all the people who helped to run the event and make it such a memorable day for all the children.

Guide to Fraction Arithmetic

Calculating with fractions was brought into the primary curriculum with the review in 2014 and children across the country have found it quite tricky. Because of this, I have put together a guide for the children to use as a revision aid during this critical time before the SATs. Each child in year 6 has a copy of this to use in school and at home.

Please find below a .pdf version of this booklet below for you to see how we teach these different skills to the children.
