Fifth Class worked on Self Portraits this morning during their Visual Arts Painting Lesson. This was a follow-up to last week’s sketching lesson on Self Portraits.

Can you recognise any of the children in the Self Portraits?!!

Great work children.

Equivalent Fractions & Our Learning Space

Filed under Maths

5th Class made their own Fraction Walls this morning to assist them in understanding Equivalent Fractions sums in their textbooks.

Some of the children moved their ‘Learning Space’ from the desk to the floor as their Fraction Walls required more space!
