Week 5

Lesson 1 Add and subtract fractions 



Lesson 2 Add fractions



Lesson 3 Add mixed numbers



Lesson 4 Subtract mixed numbers




We are going to be looking at the book Kensuke's Kingdom. It is about a boy called Michael who gets shipwrecked on an island with nothing but the clothes he is wearing and his dog Stella to keep him company. 

Session 1

In the book, Michael's father decides that the family will sail around the world together. Do you think that it would be a good idea to sail around the world with your family? Think of 5 reasons for doing it and 5 reasons against. Using the following sentence starts, plan and write a balanced argument about sailing around the world with your family. 

I am not sure that sailing around the world with my family would be good because .....

On the other hand ......

One good thing would be .....

Another point of view is ....

Finally i think ....

Session 2

Now you have thought about sailing around the world, its time to read the first chapter of the book. Click on where it says session 2 to find the first chapter. 

Session 3

Now that you have read Chapter one, answer the questions about it (click on Session 3 above)

Session 4 

'A creeping misery came over the house. Sometimes I'd come home and they just wouldn't be speaking.'

After Michael's parents lose their jobs in the brickworks, Michael's home life changes dramatically. He notices the arguments and the atmosphere between his parents, so he tries to stay out of the way as much as possible.

Imagine you are Michael, write a diary entry about what is happening at home in this part of the story and how you feel about it.

Session 5

Summarise Chapter one in 150 words.
