# Week beginning 12th October

## Wednesday 14th October- Maths

In Maths we are learning to add and subtract fractions with different denominators. To do this we need to change both denominators so that they are the same (we can use our times tables knowledge to find a common number) and then use this multiple on our numerator. Once we have found a common denominator we need to leave that and just add or subtract the numerator.  Try the sheet below.
