Warm up activity:
Complete these questions about equivalent fractions and simplifying fractions to check that you understood the work from yesterday.
Today, we will be revising word classes.
Work through this PowerPoint to remind yourself about the different word classes and answer the questions to check your understanding.
Go through the questions on this PowerPoint to search for more difficult words from each word class.
At times, the PowerPoint will say ‘your turn’. At that point, answer the questions on the sheet below, that link to that word class.
Finally, check your answers:
Have a read of a book of your choice. Answer the questions on this sheet before, during and after reading.
Today we are going to revise how to add and subtract fractions that have the same and different denominators. Do you remember how?
Have a go at these first.
Now check your answers:
What about when this happens?
¼ + 1/8 =
When the denominators are different, we need to change 1 or both of the fractions so that they denominator is the same. We use the rule ‘whatever we do to the bottom, we must do to the top’.
Look at this example:
¼ + 1/8 =
I don’t need to worry about the numerator, I’m only focused on the denominator.
I’ve got 4 and 8 and I know that they both appear in the 8 times tables so that is what I will use.
4 x 2 = 8, I must also multiply the top by 2.
I end up with 2/8
1/8 can be left as it is.
Now I have 2/8 + 1/8 =
My denominators are now the same so I can simply add the numerator:
2/8 + 1/8 = 3/8
Now try these questions:
Check your answers:
What happens when I have a question like this?
1/3 + ¼
Again, the denominators are different, so I will need to change the fractions so that they are the same. This time though, 3 and 4 do not both appear in the same times table so I have to do something different.
The easiest way is to use the 2 numbers that I already have.
I’m going to start by doing 1/3 x 4 =
1 x 4 = 4
3 x 4 = 12
My answer is 4/12
Now I am going to do ¼ x 3
1 x 3 = 3
4 x 3 = 12
My answer is 3/12
Now my question is
4/12 + 3/12 = 7/12
By multiplying the fractions by each other, I end up with the same denominator.
Now try these
Check your answers:
¡Hola! ¿Que tal?
Today, we are going to learn how to introduce ourselves and ask for people’s names.
Work through this PowerPoint:
Why not introduce yourself to members of your family or write a conversation in Spanish.
Following on from our work on Kandinsky, we are going to look at abstract art in more depth. Have a look through this PowerPoint.
Complete a piece of abstract art based on what you have learnt.
At some point over the next few days, you will receive a transition booklet in the post. When it arrives, please complete the first 5 pages (front cover, drawing of your schools, worries and excitement).
