Well done to everyone, we've made it to the last week before half term!

Yr 5 - We have finally finished our Fractions unit and moving on to Decimals and Percentages (with a little more on fractions!). We will be revisiting decimals up to 2 places and then move onto learning about equivalent decimal and fractions (tenths and hundredths) and learning thousandths as a fraction.
