January 2024 - Maths 

In year 6 we have been looking at scale factor and proportions. We used scale factor 6 and multiply fractions of ingredients so that we had enough cake mixture for everyone in our team. It was great fun and they tasted delicious 😊.

January 2024 - History

Mrs Coote kindly brough in her husband’s great uncle’s pilot helmet which he used in WW2. We had a lot of fun trying it on. We also looked Mrs Renolds grandad’s ration book and we were surprised how little food was available during the war, only 1 ration of bacon a week!
