WALT compare and order fractions greater than 1

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day on the school website – this is a mini arithmetic test focused on addition and subtraction.

In the main part of the lesson, we are going use our knowledge from Friday’s lesson to help us compare and order fractions greater than 1. In the live lesson, we will look at using visual methods (such as bar models) to help us compare both improper fractions and mixed numbers. Then, Miss Ring will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day on the school website – this is a mini arithmetic test focused on multiplication and division.

In the main part of the lesson, we are going to recap our knowledge of adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator from year 4. In the live lesson, we will look at using various visual methods to help us do this, as well as beginning to look at more abstract adding of fractions with same denominator. Then, Miss Bushell will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day on the school website – this is a mini arithmetic test focused on addition and subtraction.

In the main part of the lesson, we are going add fractions with different denominators for the first time. We will learn how to use pictorial representations to help us convert fractions so they have the same denominator. Then, Mr Morris will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

This video shows using visual methods how to add fractions with different denominators

This video shows adding fractions without the use of visuals

Start today’s learning by looking at the maths starter of the day on the school website – this is a mini arithmetic test focused on multiplication and division.

In the main part of the lesson, we are going to look at adding 3 or more fractions together where 2 of the fractions are multiples of the other. Within the live lesson we will look at using bar models to help us explore this. Then, Miss Ring will direct you to complete one of the following challenges:

Need some more help?
Within this video I go through the fluency answers for the Mild Challenge - you can watch this video to help you understand how to use visual representations to add 3 or more fractions together

In this video I go through how to add 3 more fractions without using visuals. To begin with we add fractions where only 1 fraction has a different denominator, then 2 and lastly, where we need to change all 3 fractions to a common denominator

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. You are looking for the two impostors (the wrong answers).

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. There are also some Purple Mash 2 Dos set for you to complete after Miss Bushell has gone through the answers or, if you’re super speedy and finish quickly, whilst you’re waiting to go through the answers.
