Monday 8th February
Today, complete question 4 in the snow. Make snowballs to represent the muffins and boxes can be drawn out lines.
There are some extra challenges for improper fractions below.
After the live lesson, if you can, watch a TV programme from BBC iplayer. (On the computer, you will need to login or sign up). Select the 9-11 year olds learning . The lesson is in week 2, lesson 4, adding and subtracting fractions. This recaps a lot of vocabulary from this term, but also looks at improper fractions and equivalent fractions. It also introduces adding and subtracting fractions but I want the children to pay attention to the equivalent fraction part of the programme. This uses pizza's to explain fractions. The task today will also use pizza's to model equivalent fractions.
There is also a programme on BBC iplayer that goes through comparing fractions more simply and is very useful to watch. Select 7-9 year olds, week 3 lesson 6.
