Good morning everyone and welcome to Friday’s home learning activities.


A unit fraction is a fraction with a numerator of one.

A non-unit fraction is a fraction with a numerator that is any number other than one, the denominator shows ‘what kind’ the fraction is and the numerator shows ‘how many’ parts of the fraction we are looking at.


Would You Rather?

Tube A has 30 Smarties in it. You can have 2/6 of the tube.

Tube B has 25 Smarties in it. You can have 2/5 of the tube.


Which would you rather have?


To work this out we would do 30 ÷ 6 = 5. As this is how many groups we have altogether our denominator.  Then multiply 5 by our numerator of 2, so 5 x 2 = 10 smarties I can eat from tube A.

Let’s do this again with tube B to see if we get more Smarties.

So, this time we do 25 ÷ 5. As this is how many groups we have altogether our denominator. Then multiply 5 by our numerator of 2, so 5 x 2 = 10 smarties I can eat from tube B.

So both tubes equal 10.

Your task today is to work out the fractions of each set of sweets and decide which one would be better to choose in order to get more sweets.

Mild – Fractions of Sweets

Spicy – Fractions of Sweets

Hot – Fractions of Sweets


Today we are going to begin writing the first draft of their non-chronological reports.

Using this draft template – A3 Draft Templates

Use the second one to make edits and improvements later next week.

 Mild  – At least 2 sentences per sub-heading

Spicy  – At least 3 sentences per sub-heading

Hot     – At least 4 sentences per sub-heading

Make sure to check that

  • You have written in third person
  • You have written in the present tense?
  • You have written enough for each sub-heading?

Have a go at this GoNoodle activity.


Today in music I would like you to learn the lyrics and perform the song three little birds. You can use instruments and your voice to perform the song. Here is the link to the video so that you can sing along.


Pattern is made when a shape is repeated many times.

We call the repetition of pattern a ‘motif’.

Examples of patterns used in daily life include:

Painted on tiles, embroidered on fabric, printed on wallpaper, woven in carpets, inlaid in wood, carved in stone, etched in glass, engraved in metal, marked on skin.

Today we are going to learn about Wassily Kandinsky was a famous Russian artist (1866-1944).

At an early age, Wassily exhibited a very special gift called synaesthesia cognate. This gift gave him the ability to hear colours and see sounds. This special gift was encouraged by his father who enrolled him in private drawing lessons as well as lessons in piano and cello.

Kandinsky was inspired by music and colour.

Here are some examples of his work.

Picture 2

Picture 3

Picture 4

Draw around a range of 2D shapes (including circles, squares,  rectangles), cut them out and stick the shapes onto a blank page.

Closing your eyes, listen to the music and respond to the sounds by drawing onto your page.

You will have created art work in the style of Kandinsky.

Colour in some of the shapes created.


I as very excited to see what you produce. have a great weekend and keep smiling.
