To find non-unit fractions of quantities

In this lesson, we will revisit what a non-unit fraction is. We will warm up for our learning by writing down as many non-unit fractions that we can think of. Don't worry there are some pictures to help you. 
We will then begin our new learning by finding out how to use a ‘bar modelling’ strategy to help us calculate non-unit fractions of amounts. Finally, we will then work backwards by applying this knowledge to use the value of the parts to help us calculate the total value of the quantity (whole).

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


Your task - Can you use the steps to success (STS) to solve non-unit fraction quantities problems? You may need to draw a bar model to help you to find the answers.


To design and write an advertisement for a healthy snack

In this lesson, you are going to use your knowledge of the features of advertisements to write your own advert for the healthy snack they designed.

We will begin the lesson by recapping the features of advertisement, thinking about the 'PAL'

  • the Purpose
  • the Audience
  • the Language of an advertisement

Next we will recap what we learnt about the layout of an advert.

Watch the video lesson to find out more:



Your taskUsing what we have learnt, the example in our video lesson or any other examples of advertisements that you can find, create an advertisement for your healthy snack. Don't forget to think about the PAL!


Why do people with different lifestyles need different diets?

To warm up for our new Science learning we will recap the 7 essential nutrients that our body needs.
In this lesson, we will learn about what a healthy diet is and how amounts that we need of each nutrient differ depending on lifestyles (amounts of exercise, smoking, drinking etc.) and characteristics (height , age) of people. We will also learn about nutritional deficiencies as well as discuss whether there could be a solution to all of our unbalanced diet problems.

Watch the video lesson below to find out more. Have a go at some of the questions on the video.



Your tasks -

Task 1 - Can you think of three factors which might affect how much energy someone will need? Draw and label a picture for each 1

Task 2 - Who do you think should eat the most in each row? Say why you think this.
e.g. a teacher or an accountant - I think that a teacher should eat more as they do lots of walking around the classroom and around the school but an accountant works by sitting at their desk.
