Happy 75th Anniversary of VE Day
Ordering fractions again, if they have different denominators make sure that you convert them all into the same denominator. Whatever you multiply the denominator by you multiply the numerator by. If you are struggling with that, use the listing technique we started in class, having 3 parts out of 5 then adding another 3 parts out of 5 (which gives you 6 parts out of 10). Use this app to help: http://apps.barmodel.co.uk/barmodel/
There is a challenge you can complete on ordering fractions if you think you are ready for it!
We have comprehension from a picture and a pobble365 story starter for you today! Try and use some of the grammar we have been covering.
