To find unit fractions of a given quantity

During this lesson, we will continue to focus on unit fractions by finding fractions in different contexts. To warm up for our learning, we will revise the names for the different parts of fractions. Next, we will learn how to use pictorial representations alongside multiplication and division facts to solve a range of problems.

To build persuasive vocabulary to use in our advert

In this lesson, children will recap comparatives and superlatives. They will find alliteration, rhyme, adjectives and slogans. Children will write their own slogans for their healthy snack.
We will begin by choosing and writing an appropriate joining conjunction to link sentences. We will then revise our learning on comparatives and superlatives. We will then learn about slogans and discuss some famous slogans that we know e.g. 'I'm loving it' and 'Every little helps'. We will look at how slogans use alliteration, rhyme and puns in their slogans to persuade people to buy their product or service
