For the next three weeks, we will be focusing on fractions. As always each day you will have a warm-up, main lesson, some work to complete and a game to play. Sometimes your work will focus on fractions but often I will be asking you to cover other aspects of maths to make sure you are getting lots of practice. Here we go!
