LI: To add and subtract decimals within 1


For this lesson, you will need to access the videos from White Rose Maths. Try clicking on the link below.


  • Watch the videos that say 'lesson 1' and 'lesson 2' If you cannot see these straight away, go to 'Week Commencing 20th April Summer Term Week 1' and then the videos you need are the first two. 


  • When you have watched the videos, answer the questions from your Power Maths Textbook (pages 9, 10, 11)


  • Remember to keep your digits lined up and draw yourself a place value grid to help you if you need to.

LI: To add and subtract decimals greater than 1


To get you started today, we would like you to start with an arithmetic test.

Please click on the link below.

Once you have finished the questions, if you scroll down you will find the answers. Please don't look at the answers until you have finished! Try to complete the questions within 20 minutes, but don't worry if it takes you longer. Maybe you can do it again later and beat your time? 


We are going to continue with adding and subtracting decimals.

Please watch the video called 'Lesson 3, Complements to 1' and then watch the video directly underneath it called 'Lesson 4, Adding decimals-crossing the whole'.

If the link doesn't take you directly to the right videos then go to Summer Term Week 1 and you should find them there.


Next you need to use your Power Maths Textbook to complete pages 12, 13 and 14. On page 14 there are some reasoning questions, so please make sure you use the correct vocabulary and that you explain your answers. 


Thursday 11th June


LI: To add and subtract decimals with the same number of places


For your starter today please have a go at this timed challenge from the Transum website:


Now look at the PowerPoint. It has questions about units we did back in the autumn term. How many questions will you get right? 



Let's carry on with our decimals work. We would like you to watch two videos from the White Rose website:

(Summer Term Week 2 Lesson 1 and Lesson 2)


Are you ready for your questions now? Complete pages 15, 16 and 17 of your Power Maths Textbook. *When you get to question 6, remember that you first need to work out the answers on either side of the equation.*
