Year 4:  Subtract from whole amounts

Click on the link below to watch the video tutorial about subtracting fractions with the same denominator from whole amounts.


Then, complete the worksheet below (Y4 Maths Tuesday). You could print it off and write on the worksheet, or write the answers on paper/exercise book, but remember to number your answers clearly so your parents can check you are correct.

Parents: I have also uploaded the answer sheet (Y4 MATHS ANSWERS) for you to refer to.

Year 5: Add Mixed numbers

Click on the link below to watch the video tutorial to learn about how to add mixed numbers.

There is no worksheet for today. Instead, pause the video and complete the answers when instructed. You will need to use your knowledge of partitioning, equivalent fractions and how to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers.


English: Creating a Map and writing instructions

Use the powerpoint below to find out today’s writing tasks.

Click on the link on slide 2 to watch Cressida Cowell explain the first task: creating a map of your imaginary world. Then draw your own map. This will become the setting for your story that you are going to write later in the week, so make it interesting.

Once you have completed you map, you are doing to need to write a set of directions (instructions) to tell the reader how to get from one place to another. Listen to the audio commentary to help you (this starts from slide 8). Then get writing!

Keep your writing and map from today- you will need it later in the week when we will be writing our own stories.
