In maths, we had just finished our shape topic and started fractions.
Can you go outside in your garden and find 5 different objects.
- What shapes are they?
- How many sides do they have?
-How many corners do they have?
- Are they 2D or 3D shapes?
Can you use something circular such as a wrap/ pizza/ cake and cut it into different sections to identify fractions.
1. Can you cut it in half so it has 2 equal parts?
2. Can you cut it into quarters? How many equal parts are there now?
3. Can you try to write one quarter as a fraction?
When writing a fraction the top number is how many parts we have/ how many we are being asked to find.
When writing a fraction the bottom number is the total number of equal parts that you have split the shape into.
