MATHS FLUENCY

 

Today, we will carry on working on adding and subtracting money.

We're going to look at subtracting amounts of money from a whole amount.

 

We're going to use this again to help us.

 

I have £10 and I want to buy a cake.

(A cake costs £4.67)

 

I would need to do £10 - £4.67

 

Remember £10 can be written like £10 or £10.00

 

We would need to do:

    £10.00

£  4.67

 

 

Your turn

If you have £10, how much change would you get if you bought 

a) a pizza

b) some mushrooms

c) some ice cream

d) a can of fizzy pop

 

Challenge (This will include two steps)

You have £10.

How much change will you get if you bought a cake of fizzy pop AND some baked beans?

WALT: Understand pronouns

 

When writing and speaking, we use pronouns to replace nouns.

 

A pronoun can replace a proper noun, like a name. For example:

 

Without pronouns:

Ellie had grown up in Ellie's mother's workshop, in the wealthier upper parts of the City. When Ellie was eight, Ellie's mother had died, and Ellie and her brother had moved to the orphanage on Orphanage Street.

 

With pronouns:

Ellie had grown up in her mother's workshop, in the wealthier upper parts of the City. When she was eight, her mother had died, and Ellie and her brother had moved to the orphanage on Orphanage Street.

 

In this passage, the pronouns 'her' and 'she' replace 'Ellie' but the reader still knows the writer is talking about Ellie. 

 

Pronouns can also replace common nouns, such as an object. For example:

 

Without pronouns:

The fireworks streaked upwards with a sound like rushing water. The fireworks sprayed a shower of bright sparks and the noise from the fireworks was deafening to the crowd. 

 

With pronouns:

The fireworks streaked upwards with a sound like rushing water. They sprayed a shower of bright sparks and the noise from them was deafening to the crowd.

 

In this passage, the pronouns 'they' and 'them' replace 'fireworks' but the reader still knows that the fireworks are being described.

 

Take a look at the PDF to learn more about the different types of pronouns.  

 

Have a go at the questions about pronouns in your writing books. Check your answers with the correct ones underneath.
