MATHS - Fractions
Children can continue to access the mymaths.co.uk and educationcity.com websites to consolidate their learning.

This is a set of problem solving questions. We normally do around 5 or 6 questions a week. Once they have had a go, I would then go through the questions and explain the answers and if they have got any wrong, explain why.
