25.01.21 - Decimals

This week's Maths lessons focus on decimals.

 

Monday 25th January:

Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars.

Task 2: To convert between fractions and decimals (Collins, Unit 7, Week 1, Lesson 2; pages 52-53)

This lesson focuses on a recap of hundredths with some practice, and moves on to getting you to work with thousandths too! Before you have a go, watch these two videos by clicking the links below:

Once you have watched the videos, have a go at the activities as suggested below. All work sheets are available to download at the bottom of this page.

  • Must: Complete Challenge 1 which reviews hundredths (if this seems a little too tricky, have a go at starting with the Support Sheet instead).
  • Should: Complete Challenges 1 and 2 which moves on to thinking about the relationship between thousandths as fractions and as decimal fractions.
  • Could: Complete Challenges 1, 2 and 3 which asks you to convert between thousandths and decimal thousandths. (Extension: For a little more challenge, have a go at the Extension Sheet available below.)

 

Tuesday 26th January:

Task 1: Choose and play a game from the 'Play' section on Mathletics.

Task 2: To read, write, order and compare numbers with up to three decimal places (Collins, Unit 7, Week 1, Lesson 2; pages 54-55)

This lesson provides lots of opportunities to practice understanding the place value of numbers with three decimal places (or decimal thousandths). Before you get started, you may find it useful to re-watch the videos from yesterday.

Once you have watched the video, have a go at the activities as suggested below. All work sheets are available to download at the bottom of this page.

  • Must: Complete Challenge 1 which practises the skills of counting on in thousandths (if this seems a little too tricky, have a go at starting with the Support Sheet instead).
  • Should: Complete Challenges 1 and 2 which moves on to ordering numbers with three decimal places.
  • Could: Complete Challenges 1, 2 and 3 which asks you compare numbers with three decimal places using the greater than (>) and less than (<) symbols. (Extension: For a little more challenge, have a go at the Extension Sheet available below.)

 

Wednesday 27th January:

Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars.

Task 2: To round and order numbers with up to three decimal places (Collins, Unit 7, Week 1, Lesson 2; pages 56-57)

This lesson asks you to both revisit the skills of ordering from yesterday, and also to round numbers with decimals to both the nearest tenth and the nearest whole number (we have done this earlier in the year). Before you get started, watching the videos below will help you to be successful this lesson:

Once you have watched any of the videos you feel you need to, have a go at the activities as suggested below. All work sheets are available to download at the bottom of this page.

  • Must: Complete Challenge 1 (if this seems a little too tricky, have a go at starting with the Support Sheet instead).
  • Should: Complete Challenges 1 and 2.
  • Could: Complete Challenges 1, 2 and 3 (Extension: For a little more challenge, have a go at the Extension Sheet available below.)

 

Thursday 28th January:

Task 1: Choose and play a game from the 'Play' section on Mathletics.

Task 2: To solve problems involving decimals (Collins, Unit 7, Week 1, Lesson 2; pages 58-59)

This lesson requires you to use some of the skills you have been practising and learning this week, solving problems which include decimals using the different operations (+, -, ×, ÷). All work sheets are available to download at the bottom of this page.

  • Must: Complete Challenge 1.
  • Should: Complete Challenges 1 and 2.
  • Could: Complete Challenges 1, 2 and 3 (Extension: For a little more challenge, have a go at the Extension Sheet available below.)

 

Friday 29th January:

Task 1: Spend 5-10 minutes practising your times tables on TTRockStars.

Task 2: Formal division with remainders assessment

To ensure that the skills you have learnt are not forgotten, we would like you to have a go at the end of unit assessment available below (you are used to doing these in school on Fridays). You can also find the answers so that you can check how you did once you have finished (no peeking before you're done!)

Task 3: Matching Fractions, Decimals and Percentages Game

  • Access the game in your browser by clicking here. You can change the settings to adjust the level of challenge.
  • Alternatively, you can download the sheets from the resources below and use colours to match the pairs, or cut and stick the pairs together. There are three levels of challenge with Set A being the easiest, and Set C being the most difficult.
