Good Morning and a happy Monday to you all!
I know lots of you are feeling a little deflated at the moment and are finding it hard to feel motivated. Let's shake the dust off and have a little dance before we begin our work today.
Phew! Are you all feeling a bit more awake now? Well done.
I am very proud of you all for persevering and working so hard at home. Well done. Keep going.
Today we are going to be learning how to multiply unit and non-unit fractions by integers.
Relax!! It's not as tricky as it sounds. Firstly, let's understand what the words mean.
A unit fraction is a fraction that has 1 as the numerator. So, 1/2 (one half), 1/4 (one quarter), 1/25 (one twenty-fifth). These are all unit fractions.
Non unit fractions are fractions with any number apart from 1 as the numerator. So, 2/3 (two thirds), 12/16 (twelve sixteenths), 4/5 (four fifths). These are all non-unit fractions.
An integer means a whole number. 1, 2, 67, 84- these are all integers. 1/2, 3.4 are not.
Watch the video below for some guidance on the worksheet for today.
Today we are going to be making a spider diagram full of ideas for our story. Firstly, I would like you to read these stories for some inspiration.
You might want to pick an interesting object you could use in your story and then think about how this might arrive and how this could link to a setting and different characters. Try to have two characters who are different.
One could be cautious and ignore the warning, the other will not, causing something else to happen that
they did not expect – be careful what you wish for! Think about the mood or atmosphere. How might you make the weather reflect the bad news that is coming?
Fill a page up with ideas, drawings, notes. It doesn't have to be neat, but make sure you can read it. Be creative and let your imagination run wild!
Ethan has already written his story, I loved it so much because it included the names of all of our class. I decided to record it, and I will post it below for inspiration!
Did you know that this week is a very special week? It's Refugee week 2020. A refugee is a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster.
We hear about refugees in the bible, but unfortunately there are still refugees today. It must be a very scary thing to be a refugee. Watch the video below for some more information on refugees.
