To finish your English work for the week, you will need to complete the ‘Sentence Imitation’ section and the ‘Write Away’ section! These tasks involve getting creative and using the structure of the text as a guide, so I can’t wait to hear some excellent sentences.
Please stop when you get to the section titled ‘It’s now your turn to be an author’ as that is the work for next Monday.
We are working with improper fractions again today, this time turning them into mixed numbers. A mixed number is a number that is not a whole number. Because it is not a whole number, a mixed number is also not an integer! Remember that 1 whole = 1 one, and you should be able to work through these. Count your wholes and then count what fraction you have left over. For example, 12/5 could also be written as 2 2/5, as it creates 2 wholes, with 2/5ths left over.
Note: There is also a fantastic game here: https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/build-a-fraction/latest/build-a-fraction_en.html which helps with visualising making a mixed number. Choose mixed numbers (middle option) for the game.
