IALT place fractions on a number line. 

We have learnt that we can divide whole numbers, shapes and objects into halves and quarters. Now we need to think about which order they go in in terms of value or quantity. 

We use a number line for all sorts of number problems, we use them for counting on and back or counting in steps.  
Today we are going to use a number line to count up in the fractions that we know. 

(not in order) ¼  , 1 (whole), ½, 0. 

If you can, print the sheet out and cut and stick the fractions on to the number line in the correct order from smallest to largest. If not, draw your own line with 5 notches, starting with zero. Use pictures or objects to represent the values in order. 

(For adult eyes only, order of fractions; 0, ¼, ½, ¾, 1) 

Tip, the number on the bottom is called the denominator and tells us how many parts something has been divided in to, so the bigger the number, the smaller the parts. The number on top is called the numerator and tells us how many of the parts we have! This helps to put them in order.



English continue... Can I plan a non-fiction text/story?   (Spy/investigation linked to Ada’s intrigue over smell?) 

Use Ada’s curiosity and inquisitive nature to inspire you to write a story about something you are (or were once) really interested in. It should be something that you do not know a lot about, or it could be a complete mystery or a crime! 

Ada smells an awful stink and is determined to find out where it’s coming from. The story follows her investigations, experiments, questions and mistakes. She never actually finds out the answer, but she doesn’t let that stop her learning more! 

Put yourself in Ada’s shoes and think of something that you would be interested enough in working hard to understand such as why do the sea tides come high and go low on the beach each day? Who ate the last ice lolly from the freezer (no one is admitting to it!), are there really aliens in outer space?  

You can start with a spider diagram to get you started. Then perhaps draw your own story map (or use one of the templates attached) to plan your story (beginning, middle and end), then write your story! 

You have the rest of the week to do this task! Enjoy, young writers and investigators!

Topic continue.... I know why living where I live is great! 

Use today and tomorrow to write a piece about all the great features about your area where you live. Do you love your street, your home, living near your family and friends. Do you think we are lucky to live near the beach and why? Have you got fields, parks, shops, other attractions near where you live? 

Finish off your writing by mentioning a few ‘even better ifs’ about where you live. 

Make this piece of work beautiful; use your best handwriting include pictures and a border. Get writing!
