Click on the link below to watch the video. Try to answer the questions on the video and do the challenge.
The worksheet for this lesson and the answers are saved for you. If you want an extra challenge, I have also saved some more questions.
Can I use measures of length?
The lessons from National Oak academy are quite challenging this week as they are using decimals and fractions and we didn't cover decimals in school together.
If you think the problems are too challenging this week, please do the maths I have set for Year 3 on length instead which will be helpful revision and consolidation. You will be taught about decimals when you return to school so you don't need to worry.
Click on the link below to get to today's lesson. Work through the quiz and video. You will be revising periods of time in the first section then go on to learn about fractions of a meter. Work through the problems as far as you can. As last week the challenge is quite tricky.
