WALT identify Islamic beliefs about God.

This half term we are going to be learning about the religion of Islam. 

Today we are going to look at the 'Qur'an' which is the holy book which contains the teachings of Allah given to the prophet Muhammed.


Allah: The Arabic word for 'God'.

Muhammed: Muhammed was a prophet and the founder of Islam.

Prophet: Allah spread his beliefs through a number of messengers, known as prophets.


Today we would like you use the Power points to make notes and gather information. 

Watch the video clip to get an understanding of what life is like following Islam.

You could then turn this information into a poster for others to read, including a heading, sub headings, definitions,religious symbol and captions giving us key information. Make it as bright and eye catching as possible.



WALT subtract fractions

Zoom 1

Today we will begin to look at subtracting fractions, this should be easier as you are already very good at adding fractions now. 

Like when you add fractions - focus on the numerators and keep the denominators the same.

As you can see we had 5 shaded parts out of 7 and took away 3 of them.

5 - 3 = 2 so 2/7

This could also be represented using a PART PART whole model and PARTITIONING.

We can also use the term 'difference' to show using subtracting fractions.

Look at the image below, can you work out the missing numerator?

REMEMBER 7 - ____ = 2?




SPAG WALT: use conjunctions correctly

Zoom 2

Today we are going to be using conjunctions to join two parts (clauses) of a sentence together. First let's recap what a simple and compound sentence is. Take a look at the picture below:


Take a look at the videos below by clicking the pictures to learn about coordinating conjunctions and subordinating conjunctions.




When using subordinating conjunctions, we need to remember ISAWAWABUB which we can use for subordinating clauses.


Good task: Rewrite the sentences using a co-ordinating conjunction.


Amazing task: Rewrite the sentences using the correct conjucntion.


Awesome task: Turn the simple sentences into a complex sentence using the subordinating conjunctions.
