Year 4, I have given you 6 worksheets this week. The extra sheet means we can move on to a different topic next week without a leftover sheet. So a little bit of extra work for you this week.
Year 5, you have two sheets finishing decimals before you start the properties of shapes work which we'll be continuing on for the next few weeks.
Year 4, you've got one fractions sheet left and then four sheets on Money - sorry but that's the only way I could fit them in! Linking between them, think that 1p is 1/100th of £1 and 10p is 1/10th of £1.
Year 5, it's all about working out percentages this week - which are an incredibly common of expressing parts of a whole - in 1/100ths. Some videos for you below.
A great, visual introduction to understanding the links between fractions, decimals and percentages.
We're all on decimals this week! Year 5s, there are numerous Khan Academy videos in the previous weeks about decimals to help you understand them (I won't repost them up here as this page is already looking pretty cluttered!). Again, the answers are also below.
I've also included a great image that should help you understand the relationship between powers of 10.
Here's a great way to visualize fraction multiplication problems. Once you understand this, doing them on your own will be a lot easier!
When faced with multiplying whole numbers and fractions, understanding these two approaches will help solve the problem.
In this video, I explain some of the terminology relating to fractions that you'll need to know for this week.
A great video explaining long division. If you benefit, consider donating to Khan Academy and check out their other videos. A great resource!
A useful, quick refresher on the short division method from before the Easter holidays.
In this video, I explain how to use the compact version of short division method to divide any number by a one-digit number (or two-digit number that you know the times table for).
I use place value counters to explain why we carry our remainder when we divide 98 by 7.
In this video, I demonstrate three ways to multiply a two-digit (TO) number by a one-digit (O) number; grid/area method, expanded long multiplication and com...
In this video, I explain how to multiply a two-digit number (TO) by a two-digit number (TO) using grid/area method, expanded and compact long multiplication.
In this video, I demonstrate how to use the Grid/Area method to multiply a three-digit number (HTO) by a two-digit number (TO).
In this video, I show you how to multiply a three-digit number (HTO) by a two-digit number (TO) using the expanded and compact versions of long multiplication.
Below, you'll find some worksheets which you can use to practise what I've shown you in the videos above.
The Year 4 and 5 labels show which year this is introduced in the curriculum but there's nothing to stop Year 4s having a go at the Year 5 stuff if they're confident with their own methods.
Equally, any Year 5s struggling with the Year 5 methods can go back and revise the Year 4 work.
