### Maths

Today we will be either consolidating subtracting fractions with the same denominator (page 3 of the fraction help sheet) or applying this to fractions with different denominators (pages 3 and 4 of the fraction help sheet)

#### If you do not feel confident moving onto fractions with different denominators

Read the Powerpoint and choose to complete either the fluency green or orange questions. Or challenge yourself to solving the green or orange problem solving questions applying your understanding. (Note, the red challenges involve different denominators  so do not attempt this.)

Task 2 - Apply your learning to the interactive fraction subtraction game, linked below. Choose  challenge 1a to begin with. Then try to see if you can simplify fractions with challenge 1b.

Happy zapping!!

#### For those of you moving onto adding fractions with different denominators

Task 1 - Read pages 2 to 4 of the fractions help sheet to show you work out the smallest number that both denominators go into and convert the fractions. Remember the rule that "whatever you do to the denominator you have to do to the numerator"

Use this understanding to solve the green, orange or red challenges relating to subtracting fractions with different denominators. Please self mark using the answers at the end of the document.

Task 2 - If you need to refresh your skills look at the powerpoint and have a go at the red problem solving questions which have you needing to convert fractions to have the same denominator. Again, answers can be found at the end of the pack.
Task 3 - Apply your learning to the interactive fraction subtraction game, linked below. Choose either challenge 2a or 2b. Happy zapping!!

### English

Today we are going to be looking at the use of and importance of paragraphs to break up the text into manageable chunks. This makes it easier to not only read the text but also group similar ideas together. Don't forget the rules of when a new paragraph is needed.

Time, Place, Topic and Person

Review the text below and try to identify where you think the paragraphs should be. Where do you think the introduction ends and paragraph one starts? Look out for key words to show that the writer sis moving on and where one point ends and another stops

Where does the conclusion begin? Look for phrases t;hat show the writer is summarising what has already been said, or bringing the reader back to now.

When we are writing persuasively, it is most appropriate to separate paragraphs based on topic. This is because it allows us to separate the different points within our argument.

When we are writing persuasively, it is most appropriate to separate paragraphs based on topic. This is because it allows us to separate the different points within our argument.

So now it is your chance to review some facts to link together into separate paragraphs. Choose the appropriate challenge for you.

Green (*) underline in 2 different colours the points that would go together as one paragraph. Order the points and write out in separate paragraphs.

Orange (**) Underline in 3 different colours the points that would go together as one paragraph. Then children to order the points and write the different paragraphs.

Red(***) As per orange challenge but there are more points to have to consider which paragraph they link into.

### Religious Education
