Today we are starting our block on fractions. Go through the PowerPoint to learn about how to write a fraction and how to recognise it. Cut out some circles, squares and rectangles (template in the folder if you need it), then try to fold them in half and quarter. Colour in 1/2 and 1/4. Can you try out with other shapes like an oval or a diamond. Remember that 1/2 is 1 part of 2 equal parts.

Today we are going to learn how to use the suffix -er and -est. We use the suffix ‘er’ when we are comparing one thing to another, and ‘est’ when we are comparing three things or more.
There are exceptions to the rule with irregular words. Words that end with ‘e’ just have ‘r’ or ‘st’ on the end (eg ‘safe’, late’). Words ending in ‘y’ – change the ‘y’ for an ‘i’ then add the ‘er’ or ‘est’.
Practise by choosing an activity from the PowerPoint.
Choose 4 sentences to complete with the correct -er or -est suffix. Write the whole sentence out in books. Then complete the challenge sentences which include words ending in e and y. Write these sentences out in books too.
