Tuesday 16th June

Good morning,


We hope you are keeping well. Below is the work for today. Just remember to do what you can.

Morning Challenge


Below is a times tables test. These are the oral questions for the first four questions.

1. 8 x 4 =

2. 12 x 10 =

3. 25 ÷ 5 =

4. 36 ÷ 6 =



Conjunctions like 'because', 'if', 'while' and 'until' are called subordinating conjunctions because they link a main clause and a subordinate clause together in a sentence.

Subordinating conjunctions help to add the extra information that tells us when, why or where something happens.

For example: Laura smiled because dancing was fun!

  • 'Laura smiled' is the main clause. It makes sense all on it's own.

  • 'Because dancing was fun' is the subordinate clause. It adds additional information to the main clause and wouldn't make sense on its own.

  • 'Because' is the subordinating conjunction. It helps to add the extra information to explain why Laura was smiling.

Watch the following BBC lesson to learn more about how subordinating conjunctions work.



Adding two or more fractions


Adding fractions with the same denominators doesn’t have to be complicated, so long as you remember the simple rule: only add the numerators.

When the denominators are the same number, you just keep it that way.

Take a look at these examples.



Example 1

¹/₅ + ²/₅ =

Step 1: Focus on the numerators and add them.

1 + 2 = 3

Step 2: Now put the answer over the same denominator.

So ¹/₅ + ²/₅ = ³/₅

You can double check your answer using images.

The rectangle is split into 5 (the denominator). The two colours represents the two numerators.

How many sections are now coloured in total?

Below is a video lesson from White Rose maths. There is also a BBC lesson linked to adding two fractions together.


As it would have been Skipton Gala this weekend gone, I thought it would be nice to look at some old photos of it from the 1900s.

Looking at the old photos and comparing them to modern day ones that you can find online or your own memories of Skipton Gala, can you answer these questions?


What buildings or features of Skipton can you spot?

Have any changed since the 1900s?

What is the same/different about the clothes and fancy dress of that era?

What are the same/different about the floats?

Are the gala decorations different?

Do the residents of Skipton look like they are having fun?


What questions do you have about what's happening in the photos?
