Key Stage Two Maths Year 5 Targeted Question Book – page 42 & 43

Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

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


Today’s lesson is a round-up of all things fractions, decimals and percentages. You have all done a fab job converting between fractions to decimals, percentages to fractions etc so now it’s time to show off all of this knowledge over the two pages in your book.


The key things to remember are your place value knowledge especially when converting from decimals to fractions – this will then help you convert from fractions to percentages.




Decimal: 0.7           Fraction: 7/10        Percentage: 70%


Using your place value knowledge you know that 0.7 is in the tenths column so that means you have 7/10 this then creates your fraction. Knowing that you have 7/10 to make this into a percentage you need to convert your denominator to 100, in this case it means multiplying by 10 and the same need to happen to the numerator. This would make it 70%.


The main thing you will need to use today is to make your fractions out of 100, so remember if you see a fraction with a denominator out of 25 or 10 or 5 or 4. You need to make it out of 100 so think about what maths you need to do to convert it into 100.


Where you are asked to find a percentage of an amount think about making it into a fraction first.



Gerry the Green Grocer has 200 oranges, he sells 60 of them. What percentage of oranges does he have left?


To be able to identify the percentage first I will look at it as a fraction which would be 60/200 – remembering % means 100 I can convert my fraction so it is /100 by dividing by 2. This would give me 30/100. Making my percentage 30%.


The same would be appropriate if you are working with money too.



Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

English- Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Book – Pages 24 & 25


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


Prepositions tell you where, when or why something happens and they can also tell you when things happen in relation to each other.




On Friday, I am going to have pizza for tea.


On would be the prepositions because it is telling you when something is going to happen.


The lady in the shop told us to wait outside until there was some room.


Until would be the preposition as it is telling you when something is in relation to the shop and it’s space.


Gareth has been playing the drums since 7pm.


Since would be the preposition as it is telling you when Gareth started playing the drums.


11:50 – 12:30



Title for your book: The Sikh Holy Book 


Think back to last week’s lesson about how we look after a book – take a look at the rules that you came up with. This week you are going to focus on the Sikh holy book – this is called the Guru Granth Sahib. What do you think is in this book?

Click on the following link and take a look at the information. Write down some notes about how important it is as it teaches Sikhs how God wants them to live their lives. When you are watching the clip, listen to how they treat the book and the rituals they follow too. Write your notes into sentences to produce a factual piece about the Guru Granth Sahib.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle


Join Mrs Walsh again for your PSHE lesson – follow the video and complete the activities as you go. You will need to think about what we can do to reduce your rubbish and recycle more at home, join in with Mrs Walsh’s game of Reduce, Reuse or Recycle (get those thumbs at the ready to show which object fits into which category) and get your craft on with creating a desk tidy. You can use items from around the house – some paper, inners of the toilet roll or kitchen roll and some pencils or pens to decorate.

We will begin to read some more of our class read ‘Skellig’ – this session will take place on Google Classroom. I will be reading Chapters 19, 20 and 21 during this session. I wonder what we will find out about Michael, the garage and the new house.
