Yr6 Fractions to decimals recap 4.3.24

We have been looking at the link between fractions and decimals recently. Have a watch of this video with your child to see how this is being taught in school. We use a lot of visual representations to aid our explanations. You can always pause the video and ask your child to explain what is going on. Let us know how they are finding it.

Decimals as fractions

Here are some questions you can practise at home: Fractions, decimals, percentages sheet

These questions cover fractions, decimals and percentages. Just work through a few each day – 10 minutes makes a massive difference to embedding understanding. Tell us about the questions that are proving most challenging and we will help you with them.

You can also work on your arithmetic by answering online questions that can mark your answers for you! Use this site: Key Stage 2 Arithmetic –  mathsbot.com

House points for any work completed at home! 🙂

No choir this Thursday 7th March

Due to staff absence we will not be able to rehearse after school this Thursday 7th March. There will be a rehearsal on Monday 11th March between 1:30-2:30pm. Please make sure you have signed up if you want your child to go to the Telford Sings concert on Thursday 14th March.

School Admissions – National Offer Day for Secondary Schools 2024

Tomorrow (Friday 1 March 2024) is National Offer Day, when parents find out which secondary school their children have been offered a place at.

Applicants from Telford and Wrekin will be able to log onto the Parent Portal from midnight in order to view their school allocation.

During the morning, the Local Authority will also be sending out emails to all applicants who live within the borough and have applied on time. The email will confirm their allocated school and what to do next if they want to be considered for a higher preference school or a school not previously applied for.

Those who applied late will not be allocated a school place on National Offer Day, but will be informed that their children have been added to the waiting list for a place at their preferred schools and Telford and Wrekin local authority will contact them as soon as a place becomes available.
