Week beginning 02.12.19
This week in maths we are going to be focusssing on fractions. We will be identifying naming and writing equivalent fractions e.g. 1/2 as being the same as 2/4, 3/8, 4/8 etc. As well as this we will reduce fractions to its simplest form, including tenths to fifths, hundredths to tenths, e.g. 40/100 = 4/10 = 2/5. Alongside this we will compare and order fractions where the denominators are multiples of the same number e.g. comparing 2/5 and 3/10 by finding the common denominator and multiplying the numerator accordingly so 2/5 will become 4/10. Finally we will solve problems involving fractions, using known equivalences to help.

This week in maths we will be continuing with fractions. We will be learning to recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one to the other e.g. 7/5 = 1 whole and 2/5 as well as writing mathematical statements. again this week we will be solving reasoning and word problems involving fractions, using known equivalences to help. We will also be converting simple fractions to decimals and vice versa.
