LO: finding equivalent fractions


Today’s Maths lesson is finding equivalent fractions.  Remember that an equivalent fraction is finding another fraction which is the same.   To refresh your memories from Year 4 try this activity first – fold a piece of paper in half and then open it – you will see that you have two halves of paper which are the same as 1 whole.  Now, fold the paper in half and in half again.  When you open it you will see that you now have 4 quarters – if you look at your paper you will see that 4 quarters looks the same as 1 whole or 2 halves.  Continue until you can’t fold the paper anymore.  You’ll probably get as far as finding out what is equivalent to 4/32. 


You don’t need to complete the In Focus questions today, but I have included it and the answers to Let’s learn for you to look through.   As usual, for the Guided Practice I have left the answers for you (aren’t you lucky!) so you can really consolidate your understanding of today’s lesson.  Complete each Guided Practice question – don’t just look at the answer!  Show your working out for each one.  Next, work your way through the worksheets  Please email today’s completed Maths lesson to me.


LO: to use the text to answer questions


Today, you will be watching the video for our third lesson on Walter de La Mere’s The Listeners.  The lesson will be based on inference and retrieval skills – which you have developed during our Whole Class Reading lessons.   As you engage with this lesson, write down your answers to your questions when she asks you to pause the video.  Please email to me your answers to the questions which the online teacher has asked about retrieval and inference in the poem.



I have attached two of the slides which we usually work from for our Arithmetic lessons.  I would like you to complete both of the slides.  Complete this lesson as we would at school – 10 minutes for the questions.  Ask an adult or older sibling to go through the answers with you (just like we would in class).


LO: to understand and explain the water cycle.


Have a read through the slides where you will learn that the water cycle is a naturally recurring processes throughout our planet.   Your activity today is to create your own illustration.  On your illustration don’t forget to label the areas using the key words such as precipitation and evaporation. Please email to me your completed water cycle illustration.



For your spelling lesson, please practise your weekly spellings.   Practise each word by using the spelling strategies we have learnt in school.  I have attached a sheet to remind you of each of these strategies.
