WALT use our knowledge and skills to answer arithmetic questions

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day on the school website.

In the main part of the lesson, we will be completing an arithmetic test. Miss Bushell will set you off and then will go through the answers together with you once you’ve completed it.

WALT: Solve fraction word problems.

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter which can be found when you join the live lesson.

In this lesson we will be using all the knowledge we have learnt over these past few weeks to solve word problems. In order to solve these, you may need to either add or subtract, multiply or find fractions of amounts. Therefore it is important to read the question carefully to understand exactly what it is asking you to find out.

We will start by looking at some examples and there will be a chance for you to contribute during the lesson. We will also go through some problem solving challenges and you will have the chance to complete some of these after the chilli challenges. Miss Ring will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

WALT: Use fractions as operators.

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter which can be found when you join the live lesson.

In this lesson we will be exploring how to use fractions as operators. We will be linking our knowledge of multiplying fractions with finding fractions of amounts and discuss which method would be easier to get the same answer.

We will start by looking at some examples and there will be a chance for you to contribute during the lesson. We will also go through some problem solving challenges and you will have the chance to complete some of these after the chilli challenges. Mr Morris will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

WALT: Find fractions of amounts

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter which can be found when you join the live lesson.

In this lesson we will be exploring how to find fractions of amounts using different methods. We will start by looking at unit fractions and then move onto non-unit ones. We will also go through some problem solving challenges and you will have the chance to complete some of these after the chilli challenges. Miss Bushell will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

Monday 22nd February 2021

WALT: Recap equivalent fractions and improper fractions to mixed numbers

Start today’s learning by completing the daily 5 questions which can be accessed via the live lesson.

Today, we are going to recap how to find equivalent fractions/simplify them (Task 1) and turning improper fractions into mixed numbers (Task 2).

During the live lesson we will go over the methods used to work these out and then Miss Ring will give you a set time to complete the questions before you mark them as a group. This will be repeated for Task 1 and Task 2.
