Today we are going to be learning how to subtract fractions. We are going to use a similar method to adding, so the denominator (the number on the bottom) will stay the same and it is numerator that changes. 


First of all, watch this video up to 1min 34 to see how we subtract fractions.

Subtracting Fractions watch only until 1min 34

Introducing fraction subtraction using models.

Now have a go at subtracting the fractions in these examples:
Now, why not challenge yourself with a race against the clock like yesterday? There is one for subtraction and one for mixed addition and subtraction.
If you want a challenge, see if you can complete these walls by using addition and subtraction of fractions.


This week we are going to be looking at pronouns. These are words which replace a noun in a sentence and save us having to repeat that word over again. To find out more about pronouns, follow the link below to Bitesize. 


You will find a video explanation, some exercises to complete and a quiz. smiley


Khepri (the scarab beetle) continues with his story today. I've included the pages you have already read, but I would like you to read until the end of the document. Remember, if you can't see the text, just zoom in on the pdf.


Now, imagine that you are Khepri. What would you do in this situation? Do you want to help the prince and, if so, what can you do? 


1) List 3 options/ possibilities that you might have.


2) Choose one of them and explain why you think this is the best thing you can do in the situation. (Don't forget to use your conjunctions 'because', 'as' and 'since')



I was really impressed with your work on hieroglyphics and the Rosetta Stone last week.  Today we are going to watch a short introduction to Ancient Egypt and find out a bit about its geography.


Now I'd like you to find Egypt on a world map. 


1) Which continent is it in?


2) What part of the continent is it in ?

Take a look at these slides to find out about the land in Egypt and where the main river, cities and places of historical importance are.

Now draw or stick a map of Egypt in your book and add the following geographical features:


a) The River Nile

b) Cairo

c) Luxor

d) Valley of the Kings

e) Valley of the Queens
