Good morning Kingfishers,

I hope you are well and have been enjoying the sunshine. 

Well done for all the work you have sent me this week, it has been brilliant. I am delighted with how well you have been doing with fractions and have really enjoyed reading your writing based on The juniper Tree. Do you like the gruesome story? 

Please find the timetable for today below and the resources you need. Make sure you watch the tutorial to help you and look at the checklist too. 

Any questions or problems please send me an email. 

Have a lovely day,

Miss Stuart




Exercise-Please do the live online Joe Wicks workout (on you-tube) or an exercise of your choice.



Lesson 20 – Fractions – Multiplying unit fractions by an integer (answers greater than 1)

LO: To be able to multiply unit fractions by an integer.

SC1. I can use bar method to help visualise a problem.

SC3. I can solve unit fraction multiplication problems.

SC3. I can convert improper fractions to mixed number fractions.

SC4. I can simplify fractions.

Yesterday, we began to look at multiplying unit fractions by whole numbers. We looked at how multiplication is similar to repeated addition and how to visually represent the problem. In today’s lesson, we will be multiplying unit fractions again but this time the answers we will get will be larger than one whole and will have to convert improper fractions into mixed number fractions.

I have attached a video and PowerPoint to help guide you through today’s lesson.



Today, I would like you to solve the questions attached to the bottom of the page and self-mark using the answers.

Challenge Questions

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