Wednesday 3rd March

Y4: You will continue working with equivalent fractions today but we are back to using one of our normal activities. The video attached here reinforces how we can identify equivalent fractions: Y4 equivalent fractions. In the worksheet below, you are using the skills that you have been developing over the last few days - interpreting pictures of fractions as well as using multiplication or division to find missing numbers in equivalent fractions. I'll again try to reduce any need for sketches so just complete the following questions: 2a-f, 3b, 4 and 5.

Y5: You will continue creating equivalent fractions today but you will be using the skill of simplifying. All this means is that, following on from yesterday's work, you will be making the equivalent fraction by dividing rather than multiplying. Here is an example:


If I have 6/9 and I have to simplify it, then I need to find the highest common factor of both 6 and 9 (this just means the highest number that 6 and 9 both divide by). If you know your tables well then this is easy! It is of course 3, so we divide the numerator and denominator by 3 giving us 2/3.


The image on your worksheet demonstrates this as well. You can find today's work on the word document below, or on page 3 of the pdf.


Good luck everyone!
