Week Beginning 8th February 2021

TUESDAY 9th FEBRUARY - new work upload Google Form

Monday 8th February 2021

Let's start the week with a continuation of our work on Equivalent Fractions (fractions that are THE SAME). Have a watch of the video, look at the two supporting documents and then have a go at the tasks. Please don't forget to share your work with us, if you can!

Year 5 Equivalent Fractions

Some superb work submitted today - thank you all!

Tuesday 9th February 2021

Now we've got to grips with equivalent fractions, where the numerator is smaller than the denominator, it's time to move on and think about improper fractions (where the numerator is larger than the denominator - fractions that are bigger than a whole) and mixed numbers (whole numbers and fractions). Some of this will be revision of Y4, and some will be new learning.

Check out the video and have a go at the tasks. Have fun!

Year 5 Improper to Mixed

Wednesday 10th February 2021

Yesterday, we converted improper fractions into mixed numbers. We are now going the other way, and converting mixed numbers into improper fractions.

Take a look at the video, and then have a go at the tasks.

An amazing response to today's maths tasks - plenty of evidence of people persevering, as fractions can be a difficult concept to grasp. Great to see a few new faces sending in their work to share - thank you!

Now that we've mastered switching between improper fractions and mixed numbers, we are going to move on to sequencing (or counting along in) fractions. As usual, there's a video to watch and a set of tasks to complete. Have fun!

Year 5 Sequencing Fractions

Another range of responses from today's tasks...who spotted that Whitney, Teddy AND Eva were ALL CORRECT?

Leading neatly on from sequencing fractions comes comparing and ordering fractions - is 6/7 bigger or small that 7/8? Tune in to the video to find out how to work it out, and then have a go at the tasks!
