Welcome back to the Year 4 blog.
In Maths we have been learning to find fractions of amounts. With a little practice we found these really easy to do. So say you wanted to find 3/4 of 12, what you would need to do is first divide 12 by 4. 4 is the denominator -or the divisor. This would give you 3. Then you multiply your answer by the top number (the numerator or multiplier) to give you 3 x 3 =9. So, 3/4 of 12 is 9. Why not see how good you are at working these out?

Last week, we started to use MinecraftEdu. This is a special Minecraft designed for schools. This week we really got going with our creations. Our brief was to work as teams building houses, which ties into Our House topic. Take a look at our work so far.
