This week in maths we have started to look at fractions of a whole. We began our week with representing our fractions visually using shapes. We started to notice a strategy to help us represent trickier fractions visually and this really helped us when applying what we know to test style questions. Towards the end of the week we started to look at equivalent fractions, using a fractions wall to help us. Some of us have started to notice multiplication and division strategies when finding equivalent fractions and are now beginning to find equivalent without using a fractions wall.
Throughout our literacy lessons this week we have looked at using brackets, dashes and commas to show parenthesis - extra information added to a sentence. Miss Garratt was really impressed with our ability to identify parenthesis and how we are starting to us different types of punctuation to show this in our own writing. Today we have played 'Kahoot!' where we have had to apply what we know about parenthesis to an online game.
In our science lesson we have started to look at sound and how it travels in waves through materials vibrating. We tested this using resources such as rice on drum skins, elastic bands and rulers clamped to a desk. This week we have also started our topic on the Ancient Greeks and have began research on Greece's history.
