Today we are going to be looking at unit fractions. These are fractions where the numerator (the top number) is always one. Watch the video then complete the activity. Once you have finished, open up the answers and mark your work. As ever, I am available via the class email if you need me.
We are carrying on with out own versions of 'A Squash and a Squeeze' today. Today we are going to write up the final animal going into the house. Below is my version to help you if you need it as well as the success criteria for your writing. Remember to try and include as many as you can!
"Take in your robin," said the wise young lady.
"Take in my robin? What a curious plan!" Well the robin flew in and jumped straight onto the monkey. It started pecking its back again and again. The little old man cried, "Heavens alive! It was teeny for four its minuscule for five! There is no room! My house is a squash and a squeeze!" Then he said, "Wise young lady won't you help me please? My house is a squash and a squeeze!"
"Take them all," said the wise young lady.
"But then I'll be back where I first began!"
For this piece of writing, here is the success criteria:
Full sentences (capital letters and full stops)
Coordinating conjunctions (and, but, so, or)
Noun phrases (adjective then describing word e.g. wise old man)
Adverbs (ending in -ly e.g. hardly)
Exclamations (Sentences that being with what or how and end with an exclamation mark e.g. What a curious plan!)
Question marks to end questions
The grown-ups say I’m growing tall,
And that my clothes are growing small.
Can clothes grow small?
I always think
That things grow big
Or else they shrink.
But did they shrink
Or did I grow
Or did we both change?
I don’t know.
Problem of the Day
If you finish your maths work early or just want an extra challenge I will be posting up a Problem of the Day to try and solve. Good luck!
