LO: To write a portal story

Today, I would like you to finish writing your portal story.  Next week we will be focusing on aspects of grammar and punctuation which you will then use to improve your story, before we write up our final version.

Maths Y5/6

LO: To use fractions as operators ( Multiply fractions by whole numbers and find fractions of amounts)

For the last maths lesson of this week, use what you have been learning over the last few days as you watch the video and complete the questions.  Everyone should do Q1,2,3. 


For an extra challenge try question 4.  For some trickier problem solving, try questions 5 and 6!

Mark your work. 

Maths Year 6

LO: To find percentages of amounts

I'm a bit sad we're not in school doing this, as I love teaching percentages of amounts.  Anyway, here are some tips that will help you today.


If you have to find a percent of an amount, for example a percentage of 200, it might be helpful to work out 50%, 10% 5% and 1% first.

100% = 200

50% = 100  (50% means divide by 2 because there are 2 lots of 50 in 100)

10% = 20 (10% means divide by 10 because there are 10 lots of 10 in 100)

5% = 10 (5% means divide by 20 because there are 20 lots of 5 in 100)

1% = 2 (1% means divide by 100 because there are 100 lots of 1 in 100)


If you can work these out then you can use the information to work out other percentages.  If 10% is 20, then 30% will be 60.  If 10% is 20, 5% is 10 and 1% is 2, then 16% is 32.


I have linked some games for you to play before and after the lesson, which will help you get a secure understanding of percentages of amounts


  1. Play the first game - Percentages Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
  2. Watch the video and have a go at the questions on the sheet.
  3. Mark your work.
  4. Play the first game again and see if you can score higher / faster.
  5. Play the other games for fun, if you are able to allow Flash Player.

Play this to start - how far can you get before we start our lesson?
