Continuing our work on fractions, we're going to be looking at comparing & order and tackling the tricky task of converting improper fractions and mixed numbers.


Task 1 is looking at the work we did last week, but in the form of some Fluency, Reasoning & Problem Solving questions - like the style we use in class. Make sure you explain your answers fully when you need to.

Tasks 2, 3 & 4 are for everybody to have a go at. These are the comparing and ordering tasks, so just make sure you look at having the same denominator. If this is something you found hard last week, join us for the Maths Group on Monday where I'll be going through it again.

Tasks 5 & 6 are looking at improper fractions and mixed numbers. This is a Year 5 focus, so Year 4s can definitely give it a go, but don't worry if you find it hard or are unsure about it - you'll have a chance to look at it again next year when you are in Year 5.

The Challenge Task is all about which fraction of something you would like to have - make sure you check whether it's something you want more of ... some of them you want as little as possible!


If you want to use the 'help' posters I put on last week's page, then that's absolutely fine - imagine they're on our Working Wall in the classroom and keep referring back to them when you need.


If you want to join our Maths Group on Monday or Tuesday morning, the link is on your timetable.

Monday: comparing fractions by making them have the same denominator

Tuesday: improper fractions & mixed numbers


As always, there is a Countdown Challenge at the bottom of the page.

To boost your arithmetic this week, keep using TTRS, but I've also included a link to a multiplication bowling game. Hopefully it works on your device - you don't need an account to use it.
