Maths – fractions

Wednesday 24 May 2023

This week in 2C we have been securing our knowledge of fractions.  We have been looking at fractions of shapes and of amounts including one and two-digit numbers.

The fractions we have been learning about are halves (two equal parts), thirds (three equal parts) and quarters (four equal parts).

In order to find fractions of a number, we used paper plates and counters and divided them up into equal parts.

Help at home: think about where you can find fractions in the home. Why not use pizza or cake and cut them into slices to find fractions?
