Wednesday 3rd June

Good morning Year 5,

I hope you are all well. 

I was very impressed with your maths yesterday and it was great to see you all being so confident when using different strategies to solve mixed fraction number problems.

Today, in maths we will be starting to learn about decimals.

Have  great day and if you have any questions or concerns about what you are learning then you will need to contact me directly at:

Mr Cook





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



Lesson 1 – Decimals – Creating numbers up to 2-decimal places.

LO: To be able to read and write decimal numbers

SC1. I can read and recognise tenths and hundredths in a on a 100-grid square.

SC2. I can consider the relationship between decimals and their equivalent fractions.

SC3. I can write a decimal and its equivalent fraction.


In today’s lesson we are going to start to look at decimals and begin to consider their relationship between decimals and fractions. We will recap representing decimals on a 100-square grid and how to partition decimals into tenths and hundredths.

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.


There is also a fun set of questions you can use to challenge your understanding.


Also, as a bit of fun I have also added a link to an interactive decimals, fractions and percentages grid. This grid will allow you to create grids and then see what the equivalent decimals and fractions are and how they are represented visually and numerically.
