Holy Trinity CofE Primary School

Holy Trinity C of E Primary School

YEAR 5

 

This Week:
 
In English we completed our rocket explanation texts before planning short stories for the BBC 500 Words competition based on our own 'twisted tales' of traditional fairy tales. 
 
In Maths we continued our fractions unit. We completed fraction sequences, describing the rule each time. We then focused on comparing and ordering fractions less than and greater than 1. We created our 'fraction top tips', remembering that when comparing fractions, we must ensure the type of fraction and the denominators are the same.
