4CC have settled back in really well after Christmas and have been working hard in all their subjects.

In maths this term, we are focusing on fractions. This will include adding and subtracting fractions, comparing fractions and understanding equivalent fractions.
This term in science, will are focussing on the human body, such as the digestive system and teeth. We will look at each element and what their jobs are in our body.

The children have access to myON® which has hundreds of online books to choose from.
