Hello Kingfishers,

I hope you are well and are enjoying filling buckets this week with random acts of kindness as part of challenge 4. I have loved seeing all the different ideas you have had from: listening to your parents, to giving your family hugs, to cooking meals to tidying your bedroom. For one of my random acts of kindness, I wrote a letter to tell someone how much I appreciated them. 

Your maths has been great this week, you will find the resources for today below.  

I'm really enjoying the class book The House With Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson and hope you are listening and enjoying it too. 

To contact me, email:

Have a lovely day,

Miss Stuart x 




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



Lesson 8 – Fractions – Converting Mixed Number Fractions to Improper Fractions

LO: To convert mixed number fractions into improper fractions

1. I can visually represent a fraction.

2. I can use multiplication when solving problems.

3. I can use my knowledge to check for errors and justify my corrections.

Yesterday, we introduced improper fractions and mixed number fractions.

We learnt that an improper fraction is where the numerator (the number of parts you have) is larger than the denominator (the number of parts the whole is split into).

E.g.   13


We also learnt that a mixed number fraction is where you have whole numbers (integers) and fractions together.

E.g. 2    3


We learnt that representing a fraction as a bar or pie chart helped us visualise and solve a problem. We used our knowledge of fractions to help convert improper fractions to mixed number fractions.


Here is a video to remind you:

Improper to Mixed Number Fractions


Today, we are looking at how to convert mixed number fractions into improper fractions.


Watch the video to help you understand the steps:
