It was great to see a few more of you engaging with the Purple Mash blog yesterday, we really like hearing from you.
here have been some great haikus shared on Purple Mash.
Here are a few of them:
Sakura by Johnny
Blossom is pretty
As pretty as the blue moon
on a cloudless night
An ocean voyage
As waves break over the bow
The sea welcomes me
I am black and white
I eat bamboo shoots each day
I live in China
Round, square wrist pocket
I have two hands and a face
How time passes by
Today we are going to try writing shape poems.
Here are some different examples of shape poems for you to get an idea of what they look like.
Find something in your room at home and write a poem about it, making the words into its shape.
REMEMBER: You don’t need to include rhyme in a poem.
When you’ve finished, take a photo and send it in. We would love to see what you all come up with.
How did you get on with finding fractions of amounts?
Today we’re moving onto adding fractions, remember the denominator stays the same.
At the bottom of the questions, I have put an example of how you can use a bar model to help you solve each question.
The red questions today are tricky, you will need to use your knowledge of inverse operations and equivalent fractions to help you answer them.
Take care, stay safe and don’t forget to keep washing your hands!!
