Monday 23rd March
For maths today I would like you to complete the questions from either the bronze, silver or gold Primary 5-a-day sheets. Pick the one you feel most able to complete but don't be afraid to challenge yourself. I will put the answers up tomorrow. Best of luck!
You could also play the fraction matching game by clicking on the link below - have fun!
Tuesday 24th March
Today I would like you to revise some of the work we have done recently on adding fractions. There are two sets of questions - the first is adding fractions with the same denominator (easier) and the second is adding fractions with different denominators (harder). I don't expect you to do all of the questions today but try to pick a selection from the sheet you choose. There is also a video link if you want a reminder of how to do it and a link to an adding fractions game. Happy adding and subtracting!
Wednesday 25th March
Morning Year 5 - hope you got on well with the fractions work. I have included the answers to the questions that I set yesterday - I would like you to check your answers and then pick some new questions from the next sheet or, if you found it a bit tricky, try some similar questions from the same sheet. The apply questions on page 2 should really check your understanding.
Thursday 26th March
This morning I would like you to continue our work on fractions - we are now going to move on to finding fractions of amounts. As for the previous two days, I have put a link to a video, showing you how to find fractions of numbers. It shows you how to use bar models, which will help you find the fractions of amounts - you may also need to use you knowledge of division for larger numbers.
There is also a game to help you practise finding fractions of amounts.
Today I have put the questions and answers so that if you get stuck you can see where you went wrong. There are lots of questions again but I only expect you to complete a selection. Why not try a few, mark them and then try some more. Best of luck.
Friday 27th March
Today I would like you to have a bit more practice at finding fractions of amounts. If you found it a bit difficult then you can look back at the video to remind yourself how to do it. You could also pick a few of the easier questions from yesterday's sheet and use the answers to check that you are doing it correctly.
I have also given you some fluency, reasoning and problem solving questions below which I would like you to complete. If you feel really confident then just do a couple of the fluency problems before doing the reasoning. If you feel a bit less confident then try doing all of the fluency problems.
There are also some extra challenges which can be found on the powerpoint below.
