### Planning and Activities

**Day 1**

Adapt a recipe, keeping the same ratios. Calculate missing side lengths of rectangles with given ratio.

**Further Teaching with Y6**

Calculate dimensions of scaled drawing of a garden. Share today’s ‘Top tip for tests’.**Group Activities: T with Y6**

Y5 -- Draw sets of rectangles with given ratios of side lengths.

Y6 -- Solve ratio and scaling problems.

**Day 2**

Find equivalent fractions, then write fractions as the ‘same type’ (with the same denominator).**Further Teaching with Y6**

Play a game adding and subtracting fractions. Share today’s ‘Top tip for tests’.**Group Activities: T with Y6**

Y5 -- Find equivalent fractions on a fraction wall.

Y6 -- Use equivalence to add and subtract fractions less than 1.

-- Use equivalence to add and subtract fractions, including mixed numbers.

**Day 3**

Children look for fractions greater than 1, then greater than 2. Discuss improper fractions and mixed numbers. Children rewrite improper fractions as mixed numbers.**Further Teaching with Y6**

Remind children of the quick way to multiply pairs of fractions. Demonstrate using pizza image. Use the same image to divide a fraction by a whole number. Share today’s ‘Top tips for tests’.**Group Activities: T with Y6**

Y5 -- Write fractions between 1 and 2, 2 and 3, then 3 and 4.

Y6 -- Multiply pairs of fractions. Divide fractions by whole numbers.

**Day 4**

Use bar models to help find unit fractions, then non-unit fractions, of 10 times tables facts, e.g. 350, 420, 540.**Further Teaching with Y6**

Find key percentages (10%, 1% and 50%); then other percentages of amounts. Share today’s ‘Top tip for tests’.**Group Activities: T with Y6**

Y5 *Use the in-depth problem-solving investigation ‘Calculating colours’ from The Royal Institution as today’s group activity.* Or, use these activities:

-- Choose multiples of 10; use tables facts to help decide what unit and non-unit fractions of those amounts to find.

Y6 -- Calculate fractions and percentages of numbers and measures including money.
