MATHS-

Today in Maths we're continuing to look at equivalent fractions!

 

Yesterday we learnt how 1/2 is the same as 2/4- 4/8- 8/16.

Each time the numerator and denominator have been multiplied by the same number (2).

 

Today we will use number lines to improve our knowledge of equivalent fractions. 

 

GP: 

Question 1: Fill in the missing fractions on the number line.

Question 2: Add the fractions to the correct spots on the number lines. 1/2 = 4/8. Use the diagram below to help you with this question!

Question 3: Use the diagram to find the equivalent fractions.

 

Workbook: Find the missing fractions on the number line. 

TIMES TABLE CHALLENGE-

Count up in 8's to 96! Record your time!

GUIDED READING- 

Today in Guided Reading you're going to answer the comprehension questions. 

 

Remember to:

-Use the text to inform your answers.

-Use clues from the text if the answer is directly there or asks 'What you think?'

-Answer in full sentences.

WRITING-

Today in writing, you're going to write your second paragraph! The sub-heading of this paragraph is going to be:

How is chocolate made?

 

In this paragraph you will need to explain the steps needed to carry out to produce chocolate. To do this effectively you will need to use time conjunctions:

-Firstly.

-Secondly.

-Afterwards.

-Following this.

-Finally.

 

In this paragraph you're also going to include adverbs! Adverbs can be used to describe how an action is performed.

For example:

'Then, the beans are roughly grinded together in a machine in order to make a paste.'

'Following this, the paste is then carefully placed into moulding trays.'

 

Underneath, there is a list of appropriate adverbs to use, a picture of my paragraph and pictures that show the process of making chocolate however, you will already know about this from your adventure work!

 

Steps to make chocolate:

1. Cacao pods are chopped down from the trees.

2. The pods are cut open and the beans inside are left to ferment.

3. They then need to be dried out.

4. They are then roasted.

5. The beans then need to be crushed. 

6. Milk and sugar is added.

7. The mixture is then melted and made into a paste and placed in a moulding tray.

8. It then hardens and chocolate has been produced. 

ADVENTURE-

Go through the powerpoint to learn about Brazil and the Oompah Loompahs.

 

Afterwards, look at the map and answer the questions about the maps.

 

Finally, answer the fact sheet about Brazil.
