    This week in Maths, we have been looking at fractions, mixed numbers, improper fractions and bar modelling. 

    In literacy, we did some art (requested by the pupils). We designed characters that could appear in our version of a Christmas story based on the book Goth Girl.  We also wrote up on Google Sheets our tour guide notes for Ghastly Gorm Hall.
