Being a Mathematician

Next week we will be adding and subtracting fractions.

Before you come to this, you need to be confident making new equivalent fractions - we did this this week so you should have that confidence!

Watching these videos will help you prepare for maths next week.


This week we started to look at fractions, in particular equivalent fractions and simplifying fractions.


This link is very good for you and your parents to share, as it shows how you have been finding equivalent fractions across the key stage.


This BBC Bitesize page, videos, games and worksheet from their Home Learning site would be really helpful for you to interact with. While this page helps you understand how to simplify fractions


Tuning into these YouTube clips would also just remind you of things you have already done in Year 4 & 5 to do with equivalent fractions.

Being a Writer

Next week you will be introduced to another type of tense called present progressive tense. This web page link might help understand this type of tense.


Pre-learning different types of tenses will be really helpful too! Using the worksheet below will help you do this; in fact, this is the sheet we will be using on Monday in our skills lesson!

We will also be reading and watching the videos from this website - click the link to have a nose!
