Activity day - Introducing fractions
Today we are going to start looking at fractions for the first time. Watch the video to discover what fractions are, before having a go at making your own equal parts in one of our fun activities.
If you would like to find out a bit more about fractions, take a look at this MyMaths lesson:
Today we explore making and recognising equal and unequal parts. We will be looking at real life objects, shapes and quantities to find the all important equal parts. Have fun!
LO: To recognise a half
Today we are going to explore what a half is. We will look at shapes, objects and length, discovering how important it is to be accurate and create 2 equal parts of a whole.
