LO: to multiply fractions by whole numbers where the product is an improper fraction or mixed number


Today’s lesson is a continuation of yesterday’s where you learnt how to multiply fractions.  Use the skills and methods you learnt yesterday to help you with today’s work.  Watch my video lesson again if you need a reminder.  You don’t need to complete the In Focus question today, but as always work your way competently through the lesson making sure that you have solid understanding of how to multiply fractions.  You will need to convert your answers as they will be improper and your answers should be as mixed fractions.  Answer the workbook questions and then have a go at the challenge.   Please email me your work today.



LO: to understand and use modal verbs


Today, you will be consolidating your knowledge of modal verbs.  Your work is again based on the story of Eric.   You will need to open the link which takes you through the lesson   All the instructions for today’s lesson will be on the first sheet.  Your tasks for the lesson will follow on (all on one document).  You main task today will be to answer these questions:


  1. Why do you think the family decided to have a foreign exchange student?
  2. Where do you think Eric has come from?
  3. How do you think the narrator feels about Eric?


The worksheets have given you two example answers for each question and then you will need to have a go at answering them yourself with your own thoughts about the story, whilst remembering to include modal verbs.
