St George's Day in England remembers St George, England's patron saint. The anniversary of his death, which is on April 23, is seen as England's national day. According to legend, he was a soldier in the Roman army who killed a dragon and saved a princess.

Today is the last day of equivalent fractions, so make sure that you have a good understanding of the equivalent fractions we have been working on since last Thursday. 


Please listen to the following lesson on White Rose Maths 

Summer Term – Week 1  

Lesson 2 – Step 3 - Equivalent Fractions (3) 

Today you have a choice of completing either the age-related WR problems (found below and on the White Rose webpage) or the document with the Inprint visual clues and fewer White Rose questions (the answers can still be found on the answer sheet). 

To challenge yourself for a greater depth understanding of equivalent fractions, try the extension problem solving questions.
