Today we are having a look at adding mixed numbers. There are two ways of doing this. 


The first way- you add all the whole numbers first, then focus on the fractions. You may need to change a fraction like we did yesterday so that the denominators match. Then add your answer to the whole number. Easy peasy. 


The second way- you convert all the mixed numbers to improper fractions, then add them like we did yesterday before converting back into a mixed number. 


Have a look at the video below for more help. As always, if it's tricky- give me a shout. I can make a video for you. 

Year 5 - Week 5 - Lesson 3 - Add mixed numbers



Today I would like you to have a go at the challenge, 'Creating a mood with a sentence of 3' please do sections a and b. 


Use the sentences in the workbook to inspire you. Can you create your own? Try to make your writing extra powerful by using a thesaurus to search for synonyms. 


You can use the story as your inspiration or think of a completely different setting. I will put some pictures below for inspiration. 3 sentences for each, outside and inside. Good luck!

Afternoon Lesson


Did you know that a staggering 250 million metric tons of plastic could make its way to the ocean in the next 10 years? And that as much as 70 percent of marine litter has been estimated to end up on the seabed?


Marine debris comes from many land and ocean sources. Yet few of us understand that our trash can travel over land, down streams, rivers and storm drains to the ocean.


That's why Project AWARE is collecting marine debris data from divers. They're painting a clear picture of the underwater trash that threatens ocean life and building a case against ocean trash for all to see.


Can you watch the video below and then make a poster we can put up in our school to teach everybody about this cause?
