To identify and describe non-unit fractions

In this lesson, we will use our knowledge of fractions to understand what the term 'non-unit fraction' means. We will explore various shapes and begin to identify the non-unit fraction that is represented.

We will warm up for our maths learning by looking at some mathematical pictures to identify unit fractions.
We will begin our learning by looking at fractions of shapes that have been shaded. We will talk about the shapes using words like 'part', 'whole' and the names of parts of a fraction. Next, we will identify whether fractions are unit fractions or non-unit fractions. We will then progress our learning by exploring which unit and non-unit fractions make one whole.

Click on the picture below to watch today's video lesson. Have a go at some of the questions on the video.


Your tasks
Part 1 - Identify which fraction of each shape has been shaded in. Then describe whether it is a unit or non-unit fraction.
Part 2 - Answer questions based on non-unit fractions.


To write complex sentences about our healthy snack

In this lesson, you will explore complex sentences and subordinating conjunctions.
Complex sentences consist of a main clause and a subordinate clause.

A clause is a group of words that contain a verb. A main clause is a sentence that makes sense on it own. A subordinate clause doesn't make sense on its own but it does give extra information

You are going to choose appropriate conjunctions for a range of sentences and look at examples of complex sentences.

Watch the video lesson to find out more:


Your task

- your ingredients

- the look of your snack

- the taste of your snack
