Maths  This week’s learning is all about fractionsWatch this clip below. 


Ask an adult to give you a piece of fruit or a biscuit, ask them to cut/break it in half. How many pieces do you have?  


  1. The pictures below show fruit and where they have been cut. Which ones do you think have been cut in half? How do you knowWith an adults’ help can you try to cut a piece of fruit in half? What did you find out?  



3.Ask a grown up to draw these shapes for you…… 



Which shape do you think has the most ways to halve it? Remember 2 halves must be the same size. 



  1. The blueberry and the peach. They will have 2 equal parts. That means that they will be the same size. 
  2. A rectangle. If you have 2 halves, they must be the same and 2 squares make a rectangle when they are put together. Remember a rectangle can have 2 longer sides but a square must have all sides the same length.


 4. An irregular shape cannot be halved. 

Topic  Animals – Life cycles  



Can you remember the different stages of the life cycle on a butterfly? Have a go at drawing it out again just using your memory. Now check your life cycle. Can you add anything to make it better? Did you miss anything?  



Now look at this video of the life cycle of a frog. 


What is the same and what is different about the life cycle of a frog and a butterfly?  



 What do animals need to survive?  


Like plants we need lots of things to keep us alive.  


Have a think – what do you think we need to keep us alive? What do animals need?  


Now watch this video and see if you were right.  


Make a poster with all the information you have learnt about what animals need.  You might focus on your favourite animal.
