How many of you went and spent most of your day outside yesterday? It was GLORIOUS weather, perfect for a long walk or (like me) relaxing on a sun lounger with a book!
My brother and I enjoying the sunshine and reading ☺️ (He also laughed at me recording Varjak Paw)
Morning work - improving sentences

Today we will be looking at fractions greater than one, for example Mr Hill having one and a half brownies from the staff room. Please go through the powerpoint presentation and choose the option sheet you would like to complete, you do not need to print the sheet out (the answer page will be at the end of the pdf).
I have also included an extension task for you (please remember that you do not HAVE to complete the extension).
