Throughout our lessons this week we have started our Fractions topic. We initially discussed what a fraction was and the meaning of the numerator and denominator. We learnt that the denominator tells us how many equal parts to split our whole into (shape, amount) and that the numerator tells us how many of those parts we need. Following on from this, we began to look at find a fraction of a shape and the importance of making sure our whole was split into equal parts. We were then able to link this with finding a fraction of an amount.
We were busy in the ICT suite this week, publishing our newspaper articles about varying events from the First World War. We began by using word processing skills to set our page out as though it was a newspaper. In particular, we focused on using the text box tool to set our work out. Once we had written our articles we changed the font and size of our text to ensure our newspaper reports looked like they had been written during the war. Next week we will be staining our work to give it an 'older newspaper' appearance.
