Core Curriculum - Wednesday

Maths - Subtracting Mixed Numbers

Today we will be continuing to subtract mixed numbers. The method is the same as yesterday but you will need to change both fractions so the demonimator is the same for each. Watch the video and then have a go at the questions below. Don't forget to do the flashback too.


Today we will be continuing to look at the text 'Devon and the Alux.'  Please re-read the text to familiarise yourself with the story.  Then you need to look at the comprehension questions and try to answer them with reference to the text.  Remember if you are asked to support with evidence make sure you use examples from the text.  You need to answer each question in a full sentence.


Today you are going to plan your discussion text. I am not well today (Tuesday) so have done my best with my example plan but have not recorded a lesson. Please take note of the writing in red on your version of the plan as it will support you to think about what details need to go where. 


Your Jamboard contributions made me smile, it feels like we are a proper class again when you all get to share your ideas together. I'm counting down the days till I get to have you all back in the classroom! 


1. Read the Jamboard pages 

2. Read Mrs N's  plan

3. Write your own plan based on what you believe are important reasons for and against. They don't have to be the same as mine.
