Keep an eye out on Times Tables Rockstars, as I have set two NEW challenges for this Friday, but set longer time limits so hopefully more of you will have the chance to join them! Get those points building!

Just to ease you all back after the Easter Holidays, we are going to do two more days with Fractions and then begin working on Decimals!

You have all done so well with Fractions so far, as we were also working on them for a good few weeks before we all began working online.

Super Stars!

Spend some time on TT Rockstars today – I am looking at your progress each day and will keep setting different tables for you to work on! Make sure you look at the 'Friday Challenges' that I set for you on TT Rockstars! (I have made them last longer this week so hopefully more of you will be able to have a go!)


Use this time to also complete any of the extension task activities you’ve not yet managed to try out from this week’s work!


There are also some extra Worded Questions for you to have a go at if you wish...

Make sure you use the place value chart and counters that you made yesterday to help you with the next few days worth of maths questions.


I have also added a SUPER USEFUL knowledge organiser for fractions, decimals and percentages which I suggest you all use to help you along. If you can, I'd suggest printing it out and sticking it into your workbook as it will be a great reference tool over the next few weeks.

23.04.2020 - Decimals up to TWO Decimal Places - Worksheet

22.04.2020 - 

Introduction to Decimals: Make your own Place Value Chart (see an example uploaded below), and then make some place value Counters.

The counters will need to be coloured in a different colour for each of the different values.

You will need:

10 (Tens)

1 (Ones)

0.1 (Tenths)

0.01 (Hundredths)

0.001 (Thousandths)

Then, have a go at adding two decimals together (recording them as you go along in your workbook book). You can choose the two decimals that you add together, but don't make them too tricky to stat off with. You can make them harder as you go along.


See my EXAMPLE of today's TASK that I have uploaded below... 

22.04.2020 - BLANK Place Value Chart Example

Finding fractions of a particular ammount is nice and straight forward, as long as you follow the simple rules about what the DENOMINATOR is telling you, and what the NUMERATOR is telling you.

Watch the CLIP, and take notes of the rules that it teaches. Make sure that you watch how the teacher uses the ‘Bar Model’ in his explainations, as I would like you to do the same thing when you are answering your worded problems.


Rules for answering worded problems:

  • Make sure you read the question more than once to decide what the question is actually asking you to work out (they like to trick you sometimes!)
  • Underline or make notes of the important bits of information in the question (they may add more detail than you actually need!)
  • Always use the Bar Model, even if you think the question is easy to understand. This will help to confirm your understanding and highlight any misconceptions about a question you may have had!
  • Always answer the questions in full sentence.
