In this lesson, you will build on your learning about equal parts by looking at sharing amounts equally. You will name the fractions, and using your understanding of numerator, vinculum and denominator, you will write the fraction.
We will begin by recapping about parts and wholes before we begin to look at the names of different fractions. We will learn about how each fraction is part of a whole (e.g 1/4 is one part of 4 which makes the whole). We will learn about the different parts of a fraction and how to write them correctly. We will finish by identifying fractions in simple pictures.
Click on the picture below to watch today's video lesson. Have a go at some of the questions on the video.
Task 1 - Write the shaded part as a fraction, then draw your own shapes or objects to represent the following unit fractions:
- One seventh
- One eighth
- One sixth
Task 2 - Complete the questions, recognising and shading fractions on activity 2.
In this lesson, we will think about the snacks we eat and why we like them. We will warm up for our lesson by revising superlatives. We will remember what they are and have a go at writing our own sentences using them.
We will begin todays learning by looking at an advert advertising an unhealthy snack, then think about healthy alternatives. Then, we will think of and design our own healthy snack. We will need to think about:
- who will buy it
- who the snack is for
- why people will want to buy it
- what the ingredients will be.
To finish we will write a persuasive sentence about the snack that we have designed.

Your task - Complete the 'Healthy Snack' design sheet. Draw and label a picture of your snack and answer the questions that we have discussed in this lesson.
Which countries are in South America? What physical features can we find in South America?
In this lesson we will recap our knowledge of the seven continents of the world, then we will zoom into the continent of South America. We will find out where South America is, before we name and locate the countries of South America and then look at some of the physical geographical features we can find on the continent. We can then compare these to the area of the UK where we live!
Task 1 - Use what you have learnt in this lesson, an atlas, the internet and /or your knowledge to name the countries in South America. Write them on your map. Can you name any of the seas around South America
Task 2 - Check your answers using the completed map on task 2. Answer the questions about South America in full sentences where it is possible.
