Thursday 25th February


Today we are looking at subtracting mixed number fractions. This links in with the work on factors and common denominators from this week.

There will be a Teams meeting at 9:30am.

There is a task below to tackle with some answers so you can mark your work afterwards.

You then need to complete the lesson on the LBQ site.  The code for the lesson is: z2zj


Today we are going to build on our work from yesterday and produce a piece of descriptive writing in role.  Our lesson is on Teams at 11:15am.  We will look at a model (pulling it apart to look at key areas) and then we will write some descriptive sentences together, before you write our own piece. 

The extracts from yesterday are also below as you may wish to refer to those. 


Our Reading tasks this week are linked to our new Science topic: Earth & Space. 

Reading and completing these tasks will help give you some background knowledge about the topic.

Today you need to complete the third of three tasks on the LBQ site.  The focus today is features of the text so remember to read the text carefully before answering the questions and look around the whole text.  The code for the lesson is: z2zj
