Spring 2 Class Assembly

Our class assembly was an extravaganza of song, dance, drama... and fractions! We shared with the school and our parents the work we have done about persuasive writing on the subject of apartheid, work we did on the Indian story 'The Foolish Man', geography work about Kolkata, dance moves we had picked up during world book week and lots of information about fractions!

Can't Stop the fractions!


I’ve got the thought – of those fractions,
They’re stuck there in my brain so I can pull them out!

All through the pages, I work them out.

Only the numerator changes when I add.

Now I’ve got the fractions in my maths book,
Now I know just what to do!
I feel the answers coming to me as I work (ooh)
I think I’ve done them right, so I check it carefully,
Then I write all of it down and then I’m done!

On the top of the line, goes the numerator,
Then underneath is the denominator!
Then when we add the bottom stays the same,
So just remember, just remember, just remember

When you work out fractions it’s just maths, maths , maths
When you cut up pizza, 
Its just maths, maths ,maths, come on
All those things you should do
It’s just maths, maths, maths
When you share your sweeties, its all fractions
You can't stop the fractions
It’s just maths, maths, maths
You can't stop the fractions
It’s just maths, maths, maths, come on

Ooh, there’s something – going on
It's in my brain, it's in my book, it's coming on (coming on)
Don't care it’s vulgar, that’s improper (or top heavy)
It's in my brain, it's in my book, it's turning on

 ‘Cause I’ve got the fractions in my maths book,
Now I know just what to do!
I feel the answers coming to me as I work (ooh)
I think I’ve done them right, so I check it carefully,
Then I write all of it down and then I’m done (done, done, done).

 

On the top of the line, goes the numerator,
Then underneath is the denominator!
Then when we add the bottom stays the same,
So just remember, just remember, just remember

When you work out fractions it’s just maths, maths , maths
When you cut up pizza, 
Its just maths, maths ,maths, come on
All those things you should do
It’s just maths, maths, maths
When you share your sweeties, it’s all fractions
You can't stop the fractions
It’s just maths, maths, maths
You can't stop the fractions
It’s just maths, maths, maths,

You can't stop the fractions
It’s just maths, maths, maths
You can't stop the fractions
It’s just maths, maths, maths…
