Maths Lesson




To find non-unit fractions of quantities.


(including  exercise book being used)Pencil, ruler, green pen, Maths book


Write the Date and LO in your book.


First, complete the knowledge quiz. This is to show what you already know so don’t worry if you find some questions tricky. Record your score in your Maths book.

Then, ‘Close Quiz’ and scroll up to the top of the page then click ‘Next Activity’.


Watch the video, the teacher will explain when to pause to complete an activity. We are not using the worksheets referred to. They look exactly the same as the activities you see on the video and slides so don’t worry about not having them.


Complete all work (including warm ups) in your Maths book under your Date and LO, not on a sheet of paper. You can reply to the teacher out loud just like a real lesson! When it says ‘Your turn’ write your answer in your book then mark in green pen when the teacher tells you the answer (you can pause the video if you need more time).


Complete the warm up activity in your book. Don’t forget to mark it in green pen.


Write the sub heading Key vocabulary in your book. Underneath the subheading write down the ‘star words’ you may need to pause the video.


I am aware that we did this two weeks ago although the video will show you a different method you can try. Have a go at it! It is good to know different strategies as you may find one that is easier than the other.


Draw a rectangle. Split it into how many parts the denominator of the fraction tells you. E.g. if the denominator is 5 split the rectangle into 5. Then share the whole between the 5 parts by drawing circles. Then look at the numerator and see how many parts you need. E.g. if the numerator is 2 circle 2 of the 5 parts. Then count how many circles there are in the parts you have circled.


Pause the video at 16:16. There is now a challenge. You do not need to do this if you are not feeling confident or unsure. Skip the video to 23:00.

If you are feeling confident, have a go! Red mathematicians must do this part.


Main Activity- Pause and close the video. Open the slides which show the larger images of the independent tasks. Click until you reach ‘Main Task’.  Again, there are two parts. Everyone needs to complete part 1. You could use the bar model that the teacher went through or if you are unsure you can sue the method that we did two weeks ago e.g.

  of 18 = 15


18 ÷ 6 = 3


3 x 5 = 15


Part 2- only complete this if you are feeling confident enough! Red mathematicians must do this part.


Then, resume the video (by scrolling to the top of the page to find the icon) and mark your work in green pen.

Then, click ‘Next Activity’ to view ‘Start Quiz’. Complete the quiz and record your score in your Maths book and send it to your class teacher via I Am Learning tomorrow morning.
