Year 5 - Fitness and Fractions
Dragonflies have been working hard on their mathematical skills this week applying their knowledge of their time tables to compare two fractions by finding equivalent fractions – we know “whatever you do to the top you do to the bottom!” Sticking with fractions we have converted improper fractions to mixed numbers and used this understanding to complete the inverse operation.
In English we have thought deeply about the work of David Attenborough throughout biographies. In PE we completed some baseline assessments of our fitness and have recorded these for future reference to see if we have improved. In art we are using our skills of tonal shading to match colours within paintings and in science we have started to understand the position, size and surface temperature of the planets in our solar system. Phew what a busy week!
