This week was jam-packed with all sorts of activities!
In Maths we continued to look at fractions and most of us now know how to find equivalent fraction, fractions of a shape and fractions of a number. I introduced the children to a vintage Mr. Sutherland concept that I used back in one of my teaching practicum placements: The Hurricane Method. Try explaining this method to someone at home kids!
One of the highlights from our English lessons was making our own versions of Frobscottle (the make-believe drink from the BFG). The children made instructions to make their drink, then had to read them aloud to one of their peers so that they could make it! This highlighted how important it is to include detail and be specific when writing instructions.
Homework this week is a mix of finding equivalent fractions and recognising adjectives. This is due on Tuesday as usual. Also remember to study your spellings for the test on Tuesday!
