Year 5 update 12.3.18

What we have been up to and what is coming up.

We have been continuing with our mystery stories with a recent focus on setting description. This will carry on this week and we will be pulling all the parts of the story together. Editing will be a huge part of our English lessons. 

In maths we have been looking at ordering and comparing fractions. We use equivalent fractions to help us to get the same denominator which always helps us to compare fractions. eg which is bigger 3/4 or 1/2? We need to convert 1/2 into quarters (2/4) to help us see which is bigger. 

This week in maths we are looking at adding and subtracting fractions with the same and different denominators. 


Remember to check your child's green log book for the spellings they are learning.
