In numeracy we began to think about how to convert fractions to decimals AND percentages. The spicy group also calculated percentages of an amount of money.
We have been thinking a lot of about friendship and identifying skills we need to manage our friendships, for example, kindness, honesty, respect and empathy. Miss McCloskey gave us different scenarios which we turned into a role play to show what we could do in those situations.
Next week we have a very busy week with orienteering and the church service!
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
