Maths This week in class we are continuing our work on Fractions.

Today we are completing a series of reasoning questions and will need to apply our knowledge of fractions to tackle these. 

Please see document attached below the grid. 

Today we are going to be learning how to add and subtract fractions which will apply our knowledge of finding and using the lowest common multiple (LCM). 

Please see the worksheets attached below the grid. 

 To apply our knowledge of adding and subtraction fractions we are going to explore responses to a calculation and explain the thoughts of each person. We are expecting a written response to each child's thoughts using the mathematical vocabulary we have been exploring.

Please see the conversation cartoon attached below the grid. 

 

Today we are going to look at our Maths fluency slides. We have previously explored this in class but this time we have adjusted the position of the stars. Using the mathematical vocabulary on the slide provide a written response telling us what you know and how you know that you are correct. 

This is attached below the grid.
