In this lesson, you will build on equal parts by looking at sharing amounts equally. You will name the fractions, and using your understanding of numerator, vinculum and denominator, you will write the fraction. Click on the link below to start the video lesson:
During this lesson, we will continue to focus on unit fractions by finding fractions in different contexts. We will use pictorial representations alongside multiplication and division facts to solve a range of problems. Click on the link below to start the video lesson:
The words this week all end with -ure.

In this lesson, we are going to be learning about mountain ranges across the world and how they are formed. We will also learn about how ocean trenches are formed. Click on the link below to learn about fold mountains:
Try this experiment:
Fold mountains occur near convergent or compressional plate boundaries. Plate movement creates fold mountains as the plates move towards each other. This movement causes layers of sedimentary rock on the ocean floor to become wrinkled and folded. These mountains are found between two continental plates.
The boxes represented the continental plates and that the towels represented the sedimentary rock layers. As the towels begin to rise and take shape, what do you think is happening? What is forming?
Ask someone at home to move the boxes towards each other and see if the outcome is always the same, what shapes are formed? Are they the same shapes each time?
Vocabulary words that may be helpful for this lesson:
sedimentary, plates, continent
Use the diagram below to help you explain what fold mountains are, what could the missing labels be? Write about our experiment, this will help you with your explanations. Use diagrams to help you explain.
You could use this from our lesson about the formation of Mount Everest to help with you explanation, there is some key vocabulary at the bottom:
Ocean trenches have relatively steep sides falling to the ocean floor. Ocean trenches are typically caused when an oceanic crustal plate slides under a lighter continental plate or another oceanic plate. It is believed to work by density. Where one plate slides under another, this is called subduction.
Icy cold, pitch black and with crushing pressures - the deepest part of the ocean is one of the most hostile places on the planet. Only three explorers have made the epic journey there: 11km (seven miles) down to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean's Mariana Trench. As a new wave of deep-sea exploration begins, take a look at the mysterious world that they will be plunging into.
