FRACTIONS

FRACTIONS

The seven resources were designed for an individual student who was not confident with finding equivalent fractions and simplifying. Whilst the activities are manly focussed on simplifying fractions, both proper and improper, and recognising equivalent fractions, there is also an activity for adding and subtracting fractions which requires the student to find a common denominator. Another activity focuses on equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages. Although I designed the activities with a specific student, I have used them with other students as an opportunity to revisit learning and develop confidence.

Siren - A story of friendship

Siren - A story of friendship

I wrote the this story for an reluctant reader who was interested in the Ancient Greek Myths, however the story has a contemporary setting. Athene is not a 'fairy-tale' mermaid; she has grown up believing that Sirens and Humans are enemies. After being rescued by Nathaniel, Athene questions that belief. Is friendship between a Human and a Siren possible? The story would be a useful resource for PSHCE and used to explore the theme of friendship and trust. Environmental issues, i.e. marine conservation and pollution, are also raised in the story. *In the story, the reader discovers that Nathaniel is afraid of his bullying and violent father.
