Fractions

We have been finding equivalent fractions and simplifying fractions this week.

We need to be able to multiply and divide the numerator and denominator by the same amount to convert the fraction.

It’s another reason why knowing all our times tables is so important for most other areas of Maths!

Our times table check will be taking place in a few weeks time, make sure you are practicing!

Clay

We have been looking at different techniques for working with clay.

We can’t let it get too dry or it is difficult to manipulate, but if it’s too wet it becomes slimy and we can’t mould it!

We practiced making pinch pots and rolling out the clay correctly, before having a practise at joining clay together using the scratch and slip technique.
