Week Beginning 18.01.21

Please note that for all the below lessons we do not expect you to print out any of the accompanying worksheets. On a piece of paper, all the children need to do is write the date and WALT and then the question number they are answering.

18.01.21

WALT identify fractions greater than 1

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day. This is more of an open-ended task related to fractions. There is no ‘right answer’ so you won’t find any answers on the website. We will discuss some possible solutions in the live part of the lesson. Be ready to justify your responses and ABC what your peers say.

Today, we are going to learn how to identify fractions greater than 1, which should be a recap from year 4. In the live part of the lesson, we will be looking at using visual methods, such as part-whole models, to write sentences about fractions greater than 1. We will also look through some example questions from today’s challenges. Then, Miss Bushell will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

19.01.21

WALT convert improper fractions to mixed number fractions

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day. This is more of an open-ended task related to fractions. There is no ‘right answer’ so you won’t find any answers on the website. We will discuss some possible solutions in the live part of the lesson. Be ready to justify your responses and ABC what your peers say.

Today, we are going to learn how to convert improper fractions to mixed number fractions for the first time. In the live part of the lesson, we will be looking at what these two terms mean as well as various visual methods to help us convert these fractions. Then, Mr Morris will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

Need some more help?
If you need some more help with converting improper fractions to mixed number fractions, or you missed the live element of the lesson, then this handy video will help.

20.01.21

WALT convert mixed number fractions to improper fractions

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day. This is more of an open-ended task related to fractions. There is no ‘right answer’ so you won’t find any answers on the website. We will discuss some possible solutions in the live part of the lesson. Be ready to justify your responses and ABC what your peers say.

Today, we are going to learn to do the opposite of yesterday’s lesson. We are now going to be learning how to convert mixed numbers to improper fractions. In the live part of the lesson, we will be looking at various visual methods to help us convert these fractions. Then, Miss Ring will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

21.01.21

WALT sequence fractions

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day. This is more of an open-ended task related to fractions. There is no ‘right answer’ so you won’t find any answers on the website. We will discuss some possible solutions in the live part of the lesson. Be ready to justify your responses and ABC what your peers say.

Today, we are going to be putting fractions in order. To begin with we will look at sequencing fractions with the same denominator. We will then use our knowledge of equivalent fractions to help us sequence fractions with different denominators which are multiples of the same number. Then, Miss Bushell will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

Fancy an extra challenge?

Complete Deep, Deeper or Deepest (or all three!) as Step 3 in your learning.

Need some more help?
The videos below will help you to work out how to sequence fractions with different denominators. The first video uses a visual method (fraction strips) and the second video looks at finding equivalent fractions.

22.01.21

WALT compare and order fractions less than 1

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day. This is more of an open-ended task related to fractions. There is no ‘right answer’ so you won’t find any answers on the website. We will discuss some possible solutions in the live part of the lesson. Be ready to justify your responses and ABC what your peers say.

Today, we are going to be comparing and ordering fractions less than 1. We will build on our knowledge from yesterday’s lesson and our equivalent fraction knowledge to compare and order fractions less than 1 where the denominators are multiples of the same number. We will learn how to compare the fractions by finding a common denominator or a common numerator and use visual methods to support us. Then, Mr Morris will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

Fancy an extra challenge?

Complete Deep, Deeper or Deepest (or all three!) as Step 3 in your learning.

Need some more help?

The videos above from yesterday's lesson will help you to compare and order fractions less than 1.
