# Friday 12th Feb

Maths:

Carrying on with equivalent fractions, today we will be simplifying them so will need our multiplication knowledge again. We will be using bar modelling again to physically see how a fraction can still be the same using smaller numbers. Doubling and halving will help us throughout this lesson. As usual, you will independently carry out the guided practice and workbook but if you have any questions just let me know as this can be tricky.

Today in guided reading we will be doing more comprehension questions about The Twits as I know you have become amazing at this. The questions will be based on everything we have read so far so don't forget, if you are struggling you can go back and read the text. I would like all of your answers to be written in full sentences. I have attached an audio version of the book underneath if you'd like to listen to the rest over the holidays.

To help with comprehension questions and you can listen to the rest over the holidays if you wish.

Writing:

We are going to finish our discussion today. As we did in yesterday's lesson, we will be writing down 3 reasons and explanations for North America this time. Make sure you use conjunctions just like you did yesterday. This will encourage you to give explanations for the points that you're arguing. Once you have written both sides of the argument, you are going to conclude by making a decision on which you would pick. Would you prefer to live in the UK or North America? Give reasons for your answer.
