To investigate different ratios, we looked at smarties and looked to see if the ratios of colours were the same. We found some matching ratios between packets but they were not all the same. It was also helpful for us to simplify a ratio.
Today we celebrated our children’s successes during special mentions. A wonderful assembly. We are so proud of you all.
