This week's Derbyshire School Games daily activities are themed around racket sports.


Maths - This week for Maths we are revising our fractions work. Today, we are working on adding and subtracting fractions. Take a look at the poster and video to remind you how to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator. Then complete the two worksheets. There is also a word problems challenge to complete as well.


English - Complete the Dolphins 1, 2 or 3 star reading comprehension. Afterwards, check your answers to see how you did.


Geography - Today, we are looking at why people might be attracted to live in a city. Compare living in a city (Urban) to the countryside (Rual) in the first activity. Then choose your own European city to write an explanation about why people are attacted to living there. You might need to do some online research to support your work.


Maths - Today, there is a 1, 2 or 3 star activity to complete about tenths and hundredths as fractions and decimals. Choose one level of the activities or complete them all. Once you have finished, there is an extension to write your own numbers with up to 2 decimals places and draw some of your own representations of these.


Spanish - Take a look at the word mats for holidays and seaside words in Spanish. Then try the given website, which takes your through different games to learn the vocabulary. Once you have worked through the activities on the website, complete the two written activities.


Maths - Today, we are looking at finding fractions of quantities/amounts. First, watch the video to recap your understanding and view the Powerpoint with Mr Almeida (click on each of the sound clips when viewing in presentation mode). Then complete the worksheets. You might want to go straight for the mixed unit and non-unit fractions questions or start with just unit fractions to begin with.

English - Write up your persuasive advert. Use your planning from Thursday and the features from the WAGOLL on Wednesday.
