Today I would like you to read the story 'One Chance'. It starts on Page 7. After the first page, stop and write your predictions for what you think will happen next- no peeking!


Finish reading the rest of the story up to Page 9. 


That's all for today- a pretty easy one :) Hope you liked the story. 



Today you will be converting improper fractions into mixed numbers. 


Remember when we do the voice like the queen and say 'That's not very proper!!' An improper fraction is when the numerator (the top number) is bigger than the denominator (the bottom number). This means it is showing more than 1 whole. So, in order to understand the fraction more easily, we convert it into a mixed number. 



If I had 9/4 of pizza. What would that mean.. can you draw it? 


The denominator, the bottom number is 4. This means how many bits my pizza(s) are cut up into. So they've been cut into 4 bits, into quarters. The number on top, my numerator shows me how many slices I have. I have 9. 


How many whole pizzas can I make? I need 4 slices for a whole pizza and I have 9. 9 divided by 4 = 2 remainder 1. 


I can make 2 whole pizzas and have one slice left over, so my mixed number would be 2 whole and 1/4.

Afternoon Lesson


Well done to all of those who yesterday were able to decipher the message on the Mirror of Erised.


It read: Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi.


When you write this backwards: ishow no tyo urfac ebu tyo urhe arts desire. 


When you sort the letters out it reads: I show not your face but your hearts desire. 


This was a cipher: A way of writing to hide the intended message. Ciphered messages are used in the muggle world too! 


Can you think of a period in history where ciphered messages were used? WW2! Today you are going to practice code breaking and deciphering secret messages. Good Luck.
