Good morning and happy Wednesday! Half-way through the week already!
How are we all?
Remember if you think a telephone call or individual video call will help motivate yourselves a bit more then please let us know and we will be happy to help!
Today’s Extra Learning:
Try out this game with siblings or parents (make sure they are free first)
Warm Up: Addition & Subtraction – Missing Numbers
Carrying on from Monday and Tuesday we are going to look at adding fractions but this time they are going to have different denominators. This requires us to try and make the denominators the same.
To do this there are a few ways.
This is one way:
5/7 + 2/3 =
To make the denominators (bottom numbers) the same you can multiply them together like so:
7 x 3 = 21
Your new denominator is now 21.
You do need to now change the numerator also – remember this important rule – what you do to the bottom you also have to do to the top!
To get from 7 to 21 I multiply my denominator by 3 so therefore I now need to multiply my numerator by 3:
5 x 3 = 15
So my first fraction is 15/21
Looking now at the second fraction, to get from 3 to 21 I multiply my denominator by 7 so therefore I now need to multiply my numerator by 7:
2 x 7 = 14
So my second fraction is 14/21
Now my denominators are the same I can add them together:
15/21 + 14/21 = 29/21
This is a top heavy (improper) fraction and can also be written as 1 8/21
Let’s try it again:
2/6 + 3/5
6 x 5 = 30
2 x 5 = 10
3 x 6 = 18
10/30 + 18/30 = 28/30
Here is another example:
**Do not panic if you are finding these too challenging! Just go back to adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator!**
Ch1: (same denominator)
- 6/10 + 3/10
- 4/12 + 2/12
- 5/7 + 1/7
- 5/8 + 2/8
- 7/9 – 2/9
- 7/15 – 6/15
- 14/21 – 2/21
- 19/30 – 4/30
- 21/25 – 11/25
- 14/53 – 3/53
- 4/6 + 2/5
- 5/7 + 3/4
- 1/4 + 2/5
- 6/8 + 1/2
- 6/9 + 3/4
- 4/6 + 2/7
- 5/6 + 3/4
- 6/9 + 3/4
- 1/2 + 4/5
- 3/7 + 2/4
Ch3: Please find the equivalent fractions as well
- 4/16 + 2/5
- 5/7 + 3/24
- 1/34 + 2/5
- 6/8 + 1/12
- 6/19 + 3/4
- 4/6 + 2/17
- 5/26 + 3/4
- 6/9 + 3/14
- 1/32 + 4/5
- 3/7 + 2/24
Today you are going to plan your poem.
You need to decide:
How many verses is your poem going to have?
Is each verse going to be about a different sense? Or something different?
How are you going to include all of your senses?
Is it going to rhyme? (if the answer is yes then start finding some rhyming words)
How are you going to present your poem? In the centre of the page? Down the side?
Where are you going to include your picture? As a background? Underneath? Around the edge? Are you going to draw it?
Choose a number 88/238/5462.1
- Write in words
- Write in Roman Numerals
- Find half
- +20 – 15
- ___________ + ? = 7584
- _______________ is how many minutes it takes to go on your walk. How many hours and minutes is this? (you may need to take away the decimal for this)
We are celebrating our differences this week in PSHE.
Our differences, our uniqueness sets us apart from the rest.
You may be an excellent story writer, musician, sports person or reader!
Wouldn’t it be boring if we were all the same!
Understanding differences enables us to respect our friends even if we don’t quite agree with all of their choices.
Take a look at activity one (9-11 year old) on the link below. Choose a member of your family or a friend that you may be able to call (what a lovely opportunity to chat).
First, fill in what you know about that person already. Can you think of anything else you would like to find out about them? Then make contact with that person and discuss the questions.
Remember, you may not agree on everything and that is okay.
Have a good Wednesday!
