Morning Maths

It's Chinese New Year tomorrow, so in honour of the upcoming Year of the Ox we've got a colour by numbers Chinese New Year scene for you to complete - you'll need to know your times tables, and match the answer to the colour you need for that block. Good luck!

Literacy - I am learning to write a debate conclusion and use sentence starters.

Yesterday we did the introduction, a paragraph on the best reason for and a paragraph on the best reason against for our debate text looking at whether it would be better to live in the Stone Age or present day. Today, we're going to finish it off by writing three paragraphs - on the second best reason for, the second best reason against, and our concluding paragraph. Use this checklist to make sure your debate text looks like a debate text.

What is a concluding paragraph? In a debate text, it tells the reader which side you've picked. You need to explain to the reader why you've picked that side by summing up the two reasons you've given, and adding any extra that you didn't fit in the other paragraphs. The sentence starters below will come in very handy - which ones could you magpie?

Maths - I am learning to identify halves and quarters.

Fractions - what are they? Well, they are the same as division - splitting things up or sharing them into equal parts. We're going to start off with the most common fractions - halves and quarters.

Log onto PurpleMash where you'll see 4 activities all about halves and quarters. How can we recognise what they are?

Have a look at this video:

You might notice that fractions are made up of two numbers separated by a line. The first number, or the one on the top, is called the numerator. The bottom is called the denominator. But what does that mean? Have a look here:

So let's have a look at this question:

The whole square is cut up into 4 bits. This means that the bottom or last number has to be 4. How many pieces are shaded in red? there are 3. So the numerator, or top number, has to be 3. Think of the line in a fraction as saying 'out of' - we have 3 out of 4 of the bits in red.

This week has had Internet Safety Day in it so guess what we will be doing about?

Yes you're right! Internet Safety

Now I know you have done this before so Im sure you are all experts by now. What I would like you to do is to watch the video and then create a poster of your own design telling me all about.....you've guessed right again- internet safety! If you are feeling like a star go on to the other videos on BBC Bitesize about safety and tell me all about how other people keep us safe such as the Lollipop man.
