3) Spend 15 mins at least on Times Tables Rock Stars.
Alice H. has made a really useful video that links bar models and fraction equations to help you find equivalent fractions.
Originally the video was made for Year 5 however as we lost out on a lot of fraction learning last year the video will be especially relevant for us in Year 6.
Below you can see that the pizzas are cut into 0ne-half (1/2) and also into two two-quarters (2/4). They are the same size but use different numerators (top number in a fraction) and denominators (bottom number in the fraction). Therefore 1/2 and 2/4 are equivalent fractions.
The fraction wall above can be used to find other different equivalent fractions.
You can also use the lesson Powerpoint slides to help you, see the link below.
I have included the answers for you to check once you've completed as much of the activity as you can do.
Remember you can write out the activities and calculations on paper, you don't need to print them.

Follow the link below to Code Studio: Dance Party and use the tutorial to help you design, write & debug programs that accomplish a particular goal.
The code has already been written in the form of code blocks but you will have the opportunity to arrange the code to complete each level of the acty and debug any errors.
Try doing the Dance Party activity first and then when you are confident in organizing your coded algorithms you can move to Part 2: Keep On Dancing.
Icons are a picture-based way for people to tell their computers what to do.
In these activities you will get the chance to guess what particular app/programme icons do and create/draw your own icons.
