Lesson 3 – Decimals - Recognising the relationship between decimals and fractions.

LO: To be able to convert between decimals and fractions

SC1. I can consider the relationship between decimals and fractions.

SC2. I can represent both decimals and fractions pictorially.

SC3. I can convert between decimals and fractions.

In our introduction to decimals we looked at how we could visualise a decimal by using a 100-grid and we briefly discussed how a decimal could also have an equivalent fraction.

Today, we are going to look more at the idea of decimals and their equivalent fractions.

I have a PowerPoint and video to talk you through today’s lesson.



You will find questions and answer at the bottom of the class page.


Challenge Questions

You will find challenge questions at the end of today’s PowerPoint.

Success Criteria: 

  1. I can include similes

In ‘The House with chicken legs’ Marinka lives in a house with chicken legs. 

Just to give you a bit of inspiration, here is a YouTube clip from a 1964 Russian film called ‘Morozco’ where you can see what the House might have looked like and meet Baba Yaga: Please note: It is a comical scene and you need to fast forward to 44minutes in... 



If you could live in a home with legs: 


  • What would it look like? (Imagine, sketch, label and write a selection of descriptive paragraphs that describe your creation) 


  • Where would it take you? Please finish by starting with the following opener: My house with chicken legs would take me.... (Be creative and really use your imagination...) I would expect at least a page of high quality writing. 




Just for fun and if you have time...take this quiz to see if you could live in a house with chicken legs...

Challenge 9

What did everyone do before technology?

LO: To create a mind map

SC1. I can consider different eras of history I would like to research.

SC2. I can consider what types of games interest me.

SC3. I can ask relevant questions about a subject.

SC4. I can plan how I will research a subject.

Please watch the “challenge video” created by Mrs Mitchel and Miss Fermor:




I am very excited about this week’s challenge. It will allow you to look back in history and research the different games played by children before we had all of the modern technology we use today.

When thinking about the types of games you would like to research perhaps you would like to initially think about a period of history that interests you. Perhaps you studied the Romans, Egyptians or World War 1 and you are keen to extend your learning by discovering the games children played during these periods? Or perhaps you simply want to research many different periods of history to find the one which interests you the most?

Before you begin your research I would like you to think about the task and how you might be able to achieve it. Remember to consider your layout and presentation. Ensure you aim high like you do in your learning journals at school.

Today’s Task: create a mind map.

Please include:

a)      What is the task?

Explain what the task is and the purpose of it.

b)      What do I need to know?

List all the things you will need to know to complete this challenge.

c)       What skills will I use?

List all the skills you will need to be able to complete this challenge e.g. research.

d)      Questions you have about this challenge.

Where is the best place to find all the information etc.

Remember to include drawings in your mind map.    

If you want more guidance please look at my example on our webpage – reflective journal. 


Well-being. Please do an activity of your choice, for example: learning the new school song on the website under music, read, draw, take a walk, play a game.
