I will not be posting any daily activities over the holidays, but I will be leaving the daily lessons on this page from the last week, just in case you didn't finish all of the activities. I have also included a project for you to do over Easter but make sure that you make time to have fun and enjoy yourself too.

Ordering Fractions with the same denominator
A fraction is made from 2 different parts:
When comparing fractions we must first check that all the denominators are the same. If this is true, we look carefully at the numerator and arrange them from smallest to largest.
Think about the setting that you designed yesterday.
e.g. In my setting there are rivers of thick, dark slime which meander across the town. The rivers smell strongly of lime and there are jelly like, small fish swimming in the gooey water. You can hear the splashing of the water from a beautiful waterfall.
|Spellings||The rule for this weeks spellings is that they all end in -sure and -ture.
Look up any words that you are unsure of the meaning.
Ask a grown up to test you to see how well you can spell these words:
