The students continued with their usual routines, thought about how to make a persuasive poster and practised writing sentences again using speech punctuation and descriptive language.
The students continued with cutting up 'wholes' into different sets of fractions. They practised removing one piece of a set, stating the remaining fraction and writing it as a number sentence.
For example: 1 - 1/8=7/8
They then tried making a 'whole' in different ways and writing it as an addition sentence, e.g.
1/2 + 2/8 +1/4 = 1
You can see some examples in the photos.
