Good morning everyone, we’re half way through the week! Here’s today’s learning, enjoy!


Have a re-cap from yesterday’s learning with Mr Baird.

Fractions recap

We’re learning to find out fractions of an amount today.

Remember a fraction tells you a part of an amount. For example, what is 1/2 of 12 sweets? It’s the same as saying 12 sweet shared into two groups. The 12 comes from the TOTAL amount and the 2 comes from the DENOMINATOR (the bottom number of a fraction).

1/2 of 12 = 6.

1/2 of 16 = 8. The 16 comes from the TOTAL amount and the 2 comes from the DENOMINATOR.

Sometimes the denominator may be a 4, this means you share the total amount into 4 groups. For example, 1/4 of 12 is the same as saying 12 shared into 4 groups. 1/4 of 12 = 3.

Therefore, if the denominator is 3, this means you share the total amount into 3 groups. For example, 1/3 of 12 is the same as saying 12 shared by 3.

1/3 of 12 = 4.

Watch out though, the NUMERATOR (the top number of a fraction) may be a different number. For example, 2/3. This fraction is saying that there are 3 groups, but we’re counting 2 of the 3 groups.

2/3 of 9 = 6.

2/4 of 12. There’s 12 in total, we’re sharing by 4 groups, we’re counting 2 of the 4 groups. 2/4 of 12 = 6.

As a starter today I would like you to set a timer for 1 minute using the link below. In that minute I would like you to think of as many verbs as you can that relate to sport.

What is a ‘suffix’?

A suffix is a letter or group of letters added to the end of a word to change its meaning.

Have a look at the word walk.

Here are some different suffixes on the word walk, can you spot the odd one out?

  • Walked
  • Walking
  • Walks
  • Walker
  • Walkes

What is the wrong word?


That’s right Walkes is not right – You must decide if you need to add -s or -es. A verb will not use both of these suffixes.


Let’s have another go. Which of these words are incorrect.


  • Stretched
  • Stretching
  • stretchs
  • stretcher
  • stretches

Here are the rules to follow when adding a suffix.

Spelling Rules for Adding Suffixes
Rule Examples
Just add the suffix!






Double the consonant

When a word ends in a short vowel sound and a single consonant, you double the last letter.





Drop the final ‘e’

When a word ends in a silent letter “e,” drop that final “e” if the suffix you are using begins with a vowel.







Here is a video that may be useful!


Look at today’s list of sport-related verbs.

For each verb you should:

Write a sentence using the verb with each suffix shown. See example!

Stilling Time 

Find a quiet peaceful space in your home. You may want to dress the area with some cushions, soft toys or some pillows. Make yourself comfortable. Then listen to Mr Baird’s story and relax.

We are learning about Tsunamis today. Watch this video to see what one is and how it’s made.

Why do we wear uniforms?

Why is it important to have an identity/to belong?

Think about uniforms that we know.

Why do we have them? Do you think they are important? Would you rather not wear a uniform? Why?

The 5 Ks are aspects of a Sikh uniform.

BBC bitesize Clip

What I would like you to do is draw a picture of each of the 5ks and then describe why a Sikh would wear that item.


Have a great day everyone, keep smiling.
