This week we will be revisiting fractions again, this time: adding and subtracting fractions, including fractions with different denominators and adding and subtracting mixed numbers. For each lesson, watch the video first (by using the link below and finding the correct video), after this complete the worksheet and check your answers once you have finished. 

Check out the website below for fun, interactive fluency games!

As usual this week there are also creative challenges to complete if you would like some extra maths to do. There is also a document below you can download called 'Making Maths stick' - these are activities inspired by outdoors you can try outside or inside using objects you have at home or in the garden to problem solve and consolidate the Maths you have learnt over this year. Have fun!


Remember to only do as much as you can - these activities aren't compulsory.
