Writing Decimals as Fractions

Google Classroom at 9:10 for the first 15 minutes (Click on the Meet Link). Please attend.


For today’s lesson we are going to focus on how we can convert decimals to fractions, to be able to do this we need to use our place value knowledge. Remember the digits after the decimal point are tenths, hundredths and thousandths.


When you are writing decimals as fractions you need to look at the last digit in your number – this will tell you what your denominator would be,




0.54 - the last digit of the number is 4, this is in the hundredths column so my denominator in the fraction would be 100.


To write the numerator in this number I would just take the digits of 54 from the decimal and write this as my numerator





If the number was 0.078 – the last digit of the number is 8, this is in the thousandths column so my denominator in the fraction would be 1000.


Again take the digits from the decimal and use these for your numerator – this time you have 78





When you are writing decimals as fractions that have a number in the ones column eg: 1.65 you will need to write your fraction as a mixed number


So the 5 in the number is in the hundredths column – this means your fraction will be out of 100 and have 65 as your numerator



100    however you still have the 1 remaining from the ones column before the decimal point.


 So you would have

Using Conjunctions for Cohesion

Google Classroom at 10:50am for the first 15 minutes (Click on the Meet Link). Please attend.


Now you have got to grips with subordinating and co-ordinating conjunctions it’s time to look at how we use conjunctions for cohesion – this means to make it flow better.

When thinking about your writing, we wouldn’t write lots of short sentences all the time as this would be quite boring to read and most of these ideas would like together if you used conjunctions.


Use some of the conjunctions that we came across on Wednesday to make the sentences in your book link together but please don’t over-use the conjunctions. Think about which ideas link together.



11:50 – 12:30



We are going to continue with you learning the Makaton for Make You Feel My Love first I would like you to have a listen of this different version of the song – this is in fact the original version. Have a listen and answer the following questions in your blue lined book:

1. What instruments can you hear?

2. What is your opinion of this version of the song?

3. Which version of the song do you prefer? Adele or Bob Dylan?

4. Explain why you prefer that version. 

Bob Dylan - Make You Feel My Love (Audio) (320 kbps).mp3

Once you have listened and answered the questions take another look at the Makaton version and practice some more – see if you can remember some of the Makaton signs from last week – can you do the whole chorus now? Which parts are you finding tricky to master?
