Hello Everyone, 

Today we are asking you to submit the Writing task.

Here is today’s learning:

Literacy Learning
Reading:Learning Intention: We are learning to identify points of view in a story.
Success Criteria: I can identify a point of view in the story and describe some others



Who do you think was telling this story? Why?
How would the story be different if the slug was learning to read at school, instead of at home?

Numeracy Learning
Learning Intention:
We are learning to recognise and interpret common uses of halves, quarters and eighths of collections of objects.

Success Criteria:
I can correctly recognise and interpret common uses of halves, quarters and eighths of collections of objects.

To start off, listen to the song: 

That dog is so crazy! I don’t think it knew that you can’t cut up a book into fractions and still use it!
We already know how to make the fractions half, quarter and eighth from a whole shape. Today we are going to make fractions from a collection of objects.

To get an idea of a way to do this, watch this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugFpyFNiYtQ

Let’s make some fractions! First, find a collection of objects that you can make into fractions. Something small like Lego, pencils, sultanas, small pieces of paper, whatever you can find, at least 12 items.

Next, get a collection of objects, say start with 2. Ask yourself the question: What is half of this group?” What did you find out?

Write the heading ‘Fractions of Collections” and today’s date at the top of the page in your scrap book. You may like to divide your page into FRACTIONS (get it?!) to record what you do.
Make another amount of objects – say four. Can you make half of this collection? Can the collection be shared equally into halves? Why or why not? Tell and show someone what you’ve found out. Then you can write or draw, like in the clip, what you find out for each fraction – half, quarter and eighth of different amounts that you make. 

Why can some amounts be made into a fraction, and some can’t? Tell someone what you think, or write it in your book.

Extra challenge:
Choose a larger amount of objects, say 24, and find out the fractions for an amount.
You could also access IXL maths: 
and have a go at 10 questions.

As well as the fractions half, quarter and eighth, have a go at making the fractions thirds and fifths of a collection. Thirds is when you divide object into three equal parts. What do you think fifths is?
Have a go, write down what you find out.
