Maths - This week we will be refreshing our memory on the subject of fractions. Remember that fractions are equal parts of a whole. It could be equal parts of a whole shape or equal parts of a whole amount. The vocabulary you will need to remember and use are words like 'whole,' 'half,' 'quarter,' and 'third.' We will start by remembering our learning on unit fractions where the top number in a fraction (the numerator) is 1. For example ½ or ¼. Watch the video tutorial and then answer the questions on the sheets provided.
English- This is our final week of poetry work. Today we would like you to watch this clip and think about if you have ever seen an eagle .http://www.viewpure.com/Zem9WfgjTyI?start=0&end=0. Once you have watched this clip read this famous poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson about an eagle. With an adult talk about the language used. Some of these words are quite tricky to understand so have a think what the language might be describing. Eg. What do you think it means when he talk about 'crooked hands'? Today we are really exploring the language used in this poem. think about the adjectives and similes that are used. Have a go at answering the questions that are attached.
