Step 1, 2 and 3: Free Year 5 Fractions Consolidation of Steps 1, 2 and 3

Giuseppe is a pizza chef selling his pizzas at a local food market. He receives an order that requires the knowledge of equivalent fractions to calculate how many slices of his pizza should have olives on. The next day he tries to sell a new creation of pizza. He needs help to work out the fraction of pizza he has to sell as an improper fraction, so that he knows how many slices he has. At the end of the day, he needs to calculate how much pizza he has left as a mixed number.

This Learning Video Clip has been designed as a consolidation tool for steps 1, 2 and 3. It contains content relevant to all these steps and can be used in parts to recap a particular step on its own at the end of a teaching sequence for the included steps.
