Year 5 Home Learning – Tuesday 19th May

Good morning Year 5.

Here are your home learning tasks for today.

Maths task:

I would like you to use the skills that you developed yesterday. Today we are calculating fractions of money. There are three different worksheets, each is more challenging than the last. You don’t have to complete all three sheets but I would like you to really push yourself with the more challenging work.

Helpful hint: You must convert the money into pence. For example £4 must be changed to 400 pence before you find the fraction of the amount.

1/4 of £4


1/4 of 400p

Remember the rule from yesterday – divide by the denominator and multiply by the numerator.

400 divided by 4 = 100

100 multiplied by 1 = 100

Answer = 100 pence or £1.

It is important to measure your pulse before and at the end of an activity, and finally after your cool down. Make sure you record your results in a table.

Take care everyone,
