Again, using the image of the fraction wall, how else could you write 3/4? 

What other fractions do you know that are the same as 1/2? 

Find some other fractions which are equivalent to 3/4. Can you find any “rules” for working out equivalent fractions?

The following words are all taken from the lower key stage 2 word list in the National Curriculum:

•early •experienced •favourite •heart •important •particularly •potatoes •purpose •remembers •special •thoughtful •various •woman

day 3 – To find 1/3 and 1/5 of an amount using a known multiples.

Count in 3s when finding 1/3 until you get to the amount. However, many times you needed to count 3, that is your answer.

EXAMPLE: 1/3 of 21

3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21

I need to count 7 3s to get to 21, so 1/3 of 21 must be 7.

Count in 5s when you are finding 1/5.

1/3 of 6
1/3 of 12
1/3 of 9
1/3 of 15

If the question asks you to find a non-unit fraction (a fraction that is more than one part, such as 2/5 of 30), all you need to do is find what one part is worth and they multiply it by the number of parts the question asks for.

EXAMPLE:

I know that 1/5 of 20 is 4. One part is worth 4. So if the question asks for 2/5 of 20, I just need to do 4 + 4 because I need to know what two of these parts together is.

day 4 – To use place value to find 1/10 and 1/100 of an amount.

Finding 1/10 if the same as dividing by ten. All you need to do is to keep the digits the same but just move them one place to the right.

EXAMPLE 1/10 of 50 = 5

Notice how the 5 is in the question and the answer but the zero isn’t needed once the 5 is in the ones column.

Finding 1/100 is the same as dividing by 10 and dividing by 10 again so this time move the digit 2 places to the right.

EXAMPLE: 1/100 of 200 = 2

Again the 2 is in the question and the answer, but the zeros in the 10s and hundreds columns aren’t needed anymore as place holders.

Group 3
1/10 of 360
1/10 of 450
1/10 of 900

1/100 of 4000
Group 1
1/10 of 30
1/10 of 20
1/10 of 40
1/10 of 10  

1/100 of 100
1/100 of 300
1/100 of 400
1/100 of 200

Day 5 – To find non-unit fractions of amounts using arrays.

A non-unit fraction is a fraction that doesn’t begin with a 1 (e.g. 3/4).

To find a non-unit fraction of an amount, first you have to find the unit-fractions (e.g. 1/4)

EXAMPLE: 3/4 of 12

Step 1. Use the arrays method to organise 12 crosses into 4 columns, which will give us 1/4

x x x x

x x x x

x x x x

There are 3 crosses in each column, so 1/4 of 12 must be 3.

Step 2: To find 3/4 just add 3 of the columns together (so 3 + 3 + 3). This will tell you what 3/4 of 12 is.

ENGLISH

Day 1 – Possessive apostrophes

Possessive apostrophes tell us that something or someone belongs to someone else. It is different from plurals which means more than one. For example, The clock’s hands are broken. We know there is only one clock but there are more than one hand because hand has an -s at the end to show more than one. The word clock has -‘s to show that the hans belong to the clock.

Copy out the paragraphs below and see if you can work out where the possessive apostrophes should (and shouldn’t) go!

Cruella de Vils clothes all have two things in common. They are very expensive and made out of animals fur. Her coat is made out of a polar bears skin with three arctic fox tails hanging like tassles from the sleeves.

Cruellas car is very fancy too. It has a long bonnet which means it looks like an old fashioned sports car. Cruellas husband drives her around like a chauffer. Cruellas seat is in the back of the car where she can lounge around while her husbands seat is in the front.

The de Vils keep the Dalmatians locked up in Hell Hall. Hell Halls walls are so high that no dog could ever escape. It is like a prison for the dogs from which they can never escape.

Day 2 – Correctly using ‘a’ and ‘an’ in a noun phrase.

Copy out the paragraphs below deciding when to use ‘a’ and when to use ‘an’. Remember, if the next word begins with a vowel sound (a,e,i,o,u) then you need to begin with ‘an’.

Pongo and Missis are a/an incredibly happy couple. They love going for a/an quiet walk on a/an evening with their owners. When they get home, they enjoy having a /an doze by a/an open fire.

After getting married, they decide to have a/an baby. They end up having fifteen babies which is a/an amazing surprise to everybody! Together, they do a/an brilliant job but Missis needs help feeding so many puppies.

They ask a/an unfortunate, homeless, female Dalmatian called Perdita to help them. She is a/an natural mother and helps the puppies to grow big and strong. After a while, Perdita becomes a/an awesome new member of the family.

Day 3 – Conjunctions

Try to finish the sentences below, following on from the conjunctions provided.

Cruella de Vil calls round to the Dearlys’s house after…

She wants to buy the Dalmatian puppies for…

She needs them while they are still puppies before…

Cruella doesn’t care about the animals because…

The Dearlys won’t sell them so…

She hires  the Baddun brothers to steel the puppies while…

The Dearlys are heartbroken when…

Day 4 – Standard English

Read the paragraphs below and see if you can re-write them so that they are written in Standard English. For example, “Jasper and Horace Baddun was the worst people in London” should be “Jasper and Horace Baddun were the worst people in London.” Can you hear when you read it out loud that it sounds right? Use this strategy to check your work as you go!

Jasper and Horace Baddun was the worst people in London. They done many burglaries and robbed from many houses. Jasper don’t care what people think about him and Horace ain’t got a clue what other people think. Together they is a menace to society.

You’d best be sure to avoid meeting them. I would if I was you. They was waiting for the Dearlys to go out before they done it. Nanny Cook were all upset when she found them puppies went. But the Baddun boys aren’t caring what anyone else thinks. They is selfish and they be unkind.

Day 5 – Expanded noun phrases for descrption.

Please read the description of Cruella de Vil below.

Cruella is very stylish. She wears gloves. She holds a cigarette holder while clutching her purse. She wears a coat. She has earrings and high heal shoes. Her dress is very worth a thousand pounds!

See if you can improve it using the expanded noun phrase creator below.
