Equivalent Fractions

Google Classroom at 9:10 for the first 15 minutes (Click on the Meet Link). Please attend if possible.

Today you will be looking at equivalent fractions – remember the word equivalent means equal to or the same as.

So you are going to focus on making the fractions have the same value with a different appearance.

To make the fractions equivalent you will need to remember that whatever happens to the denominator needs to happen to the numerator and vice versa.

To be able to find the numerator for this one you need to identify that the denominator has been multiplied by 2 so you will need to do the same for the numerator at the top. So 1 x 2 = 2 therefore your missing numerator will be 2.

The same would work for this example too- think carefully about what has happened to the numerator this time, you will need to work it backwards from the last fraction to the first. You will need to do the same with the denominator once you have figured out what has happened with the numerator.

When you are asked to change tenths into hundredths and tenths into fifths too, think about how you make tenths into hundredths, what multiplication would you do? And for tenths into fifths think about what division you would do to convert this? Again whatever you do to the one part of the fraction you will need to do the same to the other part.

10:30-10:50

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Book – Pages 21 and 22

During this lesson you will be focusing on Co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions. A co-ordinating conjunction has two main clauses with the conjunction that connects them together. Co-ordinating conjunctions use the FANBOYS system:

For

And

Nor

But

Or

Yet

So

Subordinating conjunctions link a main clause and a subordinate clause together, remember that a subordinate clause wouldn’t make sense if it was written on its own. Subordinating conjunctions can be found at the start or the middle of the sentences. The subordinating conjunction will not be a FANBOYS conjunction as these only like to co-ordinating conjunctions.

11:50 – 12:30

History

Mayan Gods

Today you are going to focus on the Mayan Gods, please read through the presentation and complete the questions as you go – the answers for these can be written into your blue book. You will reach a part in the presentation that has red writing explaining that the slides after this will give you information about different Mayan Gods – please read that information carefully as you will need it to help you create a fact file about the Mayan Gods.

I have attached three different styles of Fact File for the Mayan Gods – please only choose ONE and use this to help you structure your fact file.

1:15 – 2:35

Science

Living Things

Today’s lesson follows on from the previous lesson about flowers and their reproductive parts. In this lesson you are going to cover asexual plants – this is when they don’t need to use the male and female parts of the plant in order to reproduce. The plants that you will come across today do NOT have male or female parts like the ones you looked at last time.

Take a look at the presentation and read through the information – once you have done this there is a 100 word challenge for you to complete. For this you need to look at the picture cards of the plants below the challenge and explain the different reasons that you know the plant is asexual.
