## 9:10am - 9:55am - English

For the next two weeks we will be exploring the Maori Culture.

We will learn about Maori culture and traditions in preparation for writing a narrative based on the film 'Whale Rider'.

In this lesson you're going to need an exercise book or some lined paper, a pen or pencil to write with and a ruler or any kind of straight edge that you can draw straight lines with.

## 10am - 10:40am: Zoom Maths Input & Arithmetic

What is a unit fraction?

What is a non-unit fraction?

## 11am - 12pm: Unit and non-unit fractions

We will be recapping our understanding of unit and non-unit fractions from previous years.

## 12pm - 12:15pm - Times Tables Rock Stars

Let's keep working hard with our times tables knowledge.

We will spend the next two weeks working on our individual times table speeds and accuracy.

### Try the new section on the TTRS - Jamming

Sometimes you make the best music when you’re messing about on the instruments and you can let time run away with you. Jamming is like that too.

It’s all about your choice – which tables do you want to practise? Do you want multiplication? Division? Both?

The only thing you can’t choose is that there’s no timer! So kick back and chillax with this easy-going game mode.
