# Wednesday

Maths

Warm up activity:

Level 4 - Multiplication

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10

Try these problems of the day.

WALT:  add and subtract fractions with the same denominator

1 3/4  - a mixed number (When it contains a WHOLE number AND a fraction)

7/4 - an improper fraction (when the numerator is bigger than the denominator)

Remember: when the numerator is the same as the denominator is the same as a whole one

4/4 = 1

5/5 = 1

10 / 10 = 1

12/12 = 1

Can you think of any other examples?

1  1/4 +    2 1/4    =

Add the whole numbers first  ->   1 + 2 = 3

Add the fractions =         ->       1/4 + 1/4 = 2/4

3 + 2/4 = 3 2/4

Can you solve these questions into your red book?

1  2/4 +    2 1/4    =

2 1/5 +    3 4/5    =

4  2/7 +    2 3/7    =

2 2/10 +    3 6/10    =

Challenge:

3  5/8 +    2 5/8    =

4 4/5 +    3 4/5    =

Whilst school is closed, it is extremely important that your child continues to read every day for 20 minutes. We would like your child to continue completing their reading record as usual - one page per week as follows:

5 entries of Fiction and/or non-fiction reading events.

Words to learn (x 3 minimum).

Reading Comprehension: Monday 23rd March - Friday 27th March

This week, please complete the comprehension activity based on King Arthur from your packs.

Spelling Practice: Monday 23rd March - Friday 27th March

Please complete the first week of spelling homework in your packs - Apostrophes for possessive pronouns.

To help with this, on Spelling Shed you will have a new assignment named 'Plural Possessive Apostrophe'.

Aim to have a go at these spellings for at least 20 minutes once a week.

Teachers are able to see how well you are doing.

Can you impress us with your spelling knowledge?
