To compare and order unit fractions
For our warm up, can you write as many different fractions as you can for this amount:
For example there are 18 stars so 1/2 of 18 = 9. How many more can you find?
In this lesson, we will explore the size of different unit fractions. We will compare and order these fractions, focusing on their denominators before we apply this knowledge to compare unit fractions of the same quantity.
Click on the picture below to watch today's video lesson. Have a go at some of the questions on the video.
Your tasks -
Task 1 - Compare the fractions. Use the symbols <, > and = to complete the comparison.
Use the fraction wall to compare your own unit fractions.
Task 2 - Order the fractions. Use the fraction wall to order the fractions.
Task 3 - Comparing unit fractions of the same quantity. Use the pictorial representations to help you compare the fraction statements.
Today we are are going to be writing an advertisement to sell the house that we were writing about yesterday. People who advertise and sell houses are called estate agents. Estate agents often use “creative” language to describe houses they have to sell. Sometimes they omit (leave out) the bad points of a house. Sometimes they exaggerate the selling points of a house. They may use language like:
- Well presented
- Ideal for the DIY enthusiast
- In immaculate (perfect) condition
Read the 'Estate Agent Brochure' PowerPoint presentation to see examples of positive and negative comments that an estate agent may use to help to sell a house. You can also have a go at the 'Climbing the property ladder' quiz where you can guess what estate agents actually mean.
Look at this example of a real house that is for sale. Can you spot the positive language that the estate agent has used in this advertisement. Add these examples to your list.
Your task - Create an advertisement to sell the house that you wrote about in the last lesson. You can use the template at the bottom of the page or design your own layout for the house advert. Remember to include as much detail as you can about the best rooms in the house to draw any potential buyers in!
To explain the main beliefs in Judaism.
In today's R.E lesson we are going to learn about the main Jewish beliefs. These beliefs are formed from the 10 commandments given to Moses by God. These commandments were a list of 10 rules for people to live by.
The ten rules (commandments) given to Moses are as follows:
Do you think that these rules should still be followed today? Do you think that these commandments are always easy to follow? Why?
You can read about the story of how God gave these commandments to Moses by reading the 'Judaism main beliefs' PowerPoint presentation and by watching the video by clicking here
We are going to create a class book of the 10 commandments. Choose one of the commandments and write it on your page (template can be downloaded below). Decorate your commandment appropriately for the rule that you have chosen. Choose a second commandment and do the same thing. You should finish with 2 completed commandments.
