Good morning everyone and Happy Friday, I cant believe its May already. I hope we have more sunshine this weekend.

Below you will find your numeracy and literacy tasks for today and Monday morning. I have also included some mandarin at the bottom of the page. If you find anything tricky I will be on our team page at various points throughout the day to answer any questions.

Mental maths

I have set a challenge on SUMDOG for you, it started yesterday and is all about time intervals. Remember if you have any questions just ask on teams.



Learning Intention

We are learning to use the numerator and denominator within fractions

Please watch the video below which will help. So far we have completed fractions of numbers for example using say 1/3 of 24 which would be 24 / 3 = 8. This becomes more tricky when I ask for 2/3 of 24. Today we are going work on these type of fractions.


Lets have a think about 2/3 of 24, it now becomes a two strep problem, the first step is the same as above where you work out what 1/3 of 24 is and we know thats 8. The second step is using that answer 8, we must multiply 8 by the numerator which is 2. So, 8 x 2 =16, so 2/3 of 24 is 16.

1/8 of 40 = 5          ( 40 / 8 = 5 )

3/8 of 40 = 15        ( 40 / 8 = 5 then 5 x 3 = 15 )

I have taken a photograph of the questions I would like you to try.

These extension questions will require you to divide sometimes using the bus stop method with remainders.

ERIC Reading

Please remember it is also important to try to spend time each day completing silent reading on a book of your choice. Try to aim for a minimum of 30 minutes.

There are also stories on audible which are free to listen to, they have lots of great titles.


This is another website where you can enjoy listening to stories being read.



Remember to use the spelling document and practice your words and the spelling rule again. Today you could ask an adult to test you by using a dictation, remember this is where we put the word into a sentence.


Learning Intention

We are learning to spell a set of words accurately using different activities

Word of the Day – “Bicker”

I hope you were able to record the weather for this week, it might be an idea to keep it going next week as well, I never thought Id say in Scotland but it has been too sunny all week, the weather didn’t change.

For today’s Mandarin I thought it would be nice to do some Chinese crafts. Make a paper chain dragon or fortune cat. Enjoy!
