NUMERACY - Subtract mixed numbers and improper fractions

Today we will be subtracting mixed numbers and improper fractions.  First have a go at the recap.

Spr5.7.5 - Subtract mixed numbers



Have a go at your Activating Prior Knowledge task, which is practising some joins on the lines - make sure you do this carefully and neatly! 


Your checklist for editing is also on the next document - remember to use alongside your whole writing checklist this time. Read the checklist from yesterday carefully to remind yourself of the colour coding and editing that you need to do.

GEOGRAPHY - Comparison

Your final Geography task is to compare California with our own region, the East Midlands.  


First, have a go at the activating prior knowledge task.


You will be using a Venn Diagram to compare the two regions.  


Focusing on both human and Geographical features, fill in the circles.


In the East Midlands circle, write any features which only appear in the East Midlands.

In the California circle, write any features which appear only in California.

In the central area where they cross over, write any features which may appear in both.


The two glossaries of geographical vocabulary might help to give you ideas for features to include.
