L/O: Fractions S/C: Compare and Order – Less than 1
Whole Class input:
Children build on their equivalent fraction knowledge to compare and order fractions less than 1 where the denominators are multiples of the same number. It is important that children are able to draw models so that they can directly compare them. Children need to find the common denominator in this step. They may also investigate finding a common numerator.
Show the fractions 5/8 and 7/8. Ask which is bigger and why? Go through responses.
Explain that we need to find a common denominator because we can’t compare fractions with a different denominator. Go back to converting fractions skills and link to multiplication and division. Explain it’s often easier going up to the biggest denominator; however, this isn’t always the case.

Life Cycles: Aim: to know that pollination is the process by which flowers are fertilised
Ask pupils what they know about pollination. Show a video about pollination https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-S5ui9Us7U Ask pupils to write a short explanation of pollination in their books. (There may be other pollination videos around too so please look out for those)
Look at the BSL signs for pollination:

Get pupils to make the signs. Ask them to come up with their own signs for parts of a flower. Be creative! J
