Oak class are doing brilliantly, learning all about fractions including: simplifying fractions, comparing fractions, ordering fractions and adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators. 

Our art work this term is going to be a wonderful scenic picture of the Rain forest. Parents will get to see these as we will also be turning them into our class calender's.
