Morning Maths Lesson 1

STARTER: Spend 5 minutes answering these questions. Don't forget to read the time on the clock too. 

 

Answers: 

1) cylinder

2) 8

3) 80

4) 25 + 7 = 32

Clock: The time is half past 12

MAIN: So far this week you have learned how to find a half (½) and a quarter (¼) of 2 digit numbers. Today you are going to find a third (⅓)  of 2 digit numbers using the bar model. Follow my guide to show you how :)

 

Step 1: Copy the question neatly into your green book. As the bottom number of the fraction (⅓) is a 3 we need three equal bars on the bottom of the bar model:

Take care when you draw this! It is abit tricky to draw three bars of equal length.

Step 2: Write the whole number in the whole bar. 

Step 3: Share 15 out equally between the three bars. 

Step 4: Write the total in each of the bars. Remember they MUST be the same number. If you have different numbers in the bars then you have gone wrong somewhere!

Step 5: Check you answer! Does 5 + 5 + 5 = 15? Yes! So we are correct :)

Now use this method to find a third of these 2 digit numbers:

a third of 12 = 4

⅓ of 18 = 6

⅓ of 30 = 10

⅓ of 27 = 9

a third of 36 = 12

a third of 24 = 8

 

THINK: Does this remind you of a times table we had just started to learn about in school?

 Finding a third is the same as dividing by 3! 

⅓ of 30 = 10               30 ÷ 3 = 10

⅓ of 15 = 5                 15 ÷ 3 = 5

⅓ of 12 = 4                 12 ÷ 3 = 4

Well done if you recognised this :)

 

BREAK

Morning English Lesson 2

Open your green book and write the date at the top of a new page. Look carefully at these paintings. What event are they showing?

These are three paintings of Good Friday. Which painting is your favourite?

 

I would like you to write a sentence telling me what you like about each picture (3 sentences in total) then a sentence telling me which painting is your favourite and why. You can write more if you would like to. From your descriptions I should be able to work out which painting you are writing about in each sentence!

 

Remember to:

  • use capital letters and full stops
  • include adjectives
  • include conjunctions (and, or, but, so, if, that, because)
  • use your neatest handwriting
  • use your phonics, spelling rules and the word mat in your book to help you with your spellings
  • write at least 4 interesting sentences

You could then copy one of these paintings or you could paint your own picture showing Good Friday. 

Reading
