As with last week’s learning, you many find the fraction bars, fraction pieces or the fraction wall useful to print so that you can work more practically.

 

Monday – order fractions

It will be helpful to have the fraction wall or fraction bars in front of you as you watch the lesson video.

After 10:10 on the video (and question 7 on the worksheet), it moves onto learning that is beyond the Y3 curriculum – don’t worry if this is too much of a challenge for you just now.

 

For question 5 on the worksheet, write down your thinking underneath.

Worksheet

Answers

 

Tuesday – add fractions

For the last part of question 3 on the worksheet, write down the reason why your choice is the odd one out (there are different possible answers).

Worksheet

Answers

 

Wednesday – subtract fractions

In question 3 on the worksheet, ‘simplify’ means to write the answer as an equivalent fraction where you cannot make the numerator and denominator any smaller. For example, you can simplify 2/4 to 1/2. Doing this will help you practise finding equivalent fractions. You can leave this step out if you want though and just fill in the first box after the equals sign.

For question 5, there are other possible solutions than shown on the answer sheet.

Worksheet

Answers

 

Thursday – fraction problem solving

A different style of lesson today! Some of the problems on the video match the tasks but some don’t. You could choose your own order in which to tackle them.

On ‘The Symbol’ task, it wants you to double two-fifths, not doubling the numerator and denominator separately.

Note for parents – these are deliberately practical lessons. In Year 3, children are not expected to be calculating equivalences using multiplication. The lessons do touch upon this but it’s really important that children develop a strong visual understanding of the relative size of fractions by thinking about numerators and denominators. They will then build upon this as they move further up the school.

 

The teacher is American – she says ‘fourths’ rather than ‘quarters’!

 

Monday – equivalent fractions (1)

Some of you may have already completed this task in April as the lesson has been repeated. If so, please do watch the video again as it’s the first step in an important sequence. You could go to BBC Bitesize if you want an alternative task.

 

To work on during the lesson, you may want to print off the blank fraction bars as the bars are pre-divided for you so you don’t need to measure them out!

For question 7 on the worksheet, you may not have a partner to talk to but you can write down what you have noticed instead.

Lesson 1

Lesson 1 answers

 

Tuesday – equivalent fractions (2)

To work on during the lesson, you may want to print off the blank fraction number lines.

The last section of the lesson (15:00 onwards) is definitely more of a challenge. If this is a step too far for you at the moment, don’t worry.

For question 5d on the worksheet, challenge yourself to find one more fraction for each shape instead of comparing with a partner.

Wednesday – equivalent fractions (3)

Each week, we will have Mrs Wordsmith lessons which give us the chance to learn ambitious, new vocabulary. You will be amazed to see and hear the brilliant vocabulary children are learning in school so do ask them about the new words they have learnt! Learning this new vocabulary will help us with our comprehension of words in our reading as well as improving our writing.
