WALT understand unit and non-unit fractions

Zoom 1

Today we will be learning about Fractions. A fraction is part of a 'whole' and is written using numbers above a below a line known as the Vinculum. The number above the line is called the NUMERATOR and the number below the line is called the DENOMINATOR. Each one of these numbers has a very important job.


NUMERATOR: How many parts (may be shaded or taken away)

DENOMINATOR: How many parts altogether.


A Unit Fraction is where the numerator is 1. E.g. ¼ or ½

A Non-Unit Fraction is where the numerator is greater than 1. E.g. ¾




Reading Comprehension


READING WALT recognise cohesion in paragraphs

Zoom 2

What is a paragraph? Click the picture below to find out.

When were write paragraphs we have to ensure they are cohesive. Creating cohesion means 'tying' our words, phrases, sentences and paragraphs together, to create a text where the relationships between these elements is clear and logical to the reader, giving the text 'flow'.  Click the picture below to find out what we can use to make paragraphs more cohesive.


TASK: Below is a word document containing sentences all about the Vikings. The only problem is they are completely jumbled and need to be organised into paragraphs (VIKING BOATS, VIKING HOUSES, VIKING CLOTHES and VIKING FOOD). Either cut or write the sentences under the four subheadings so that they are in order. TIP: Make sure your sentences link and start with a general topic sentence.


PFP - Rewrite one of the paragraphs and make it more interesting using cohesive devices from the video.
