We have been working hard in maths this month. We are learning about fractions. We have been using fraction wheels and fraction walls to compare fractions- identifying equivalent fractions and ordering them on a number line.

Here are some games to revise the concepts at home;

We have been using cubes, drawing pictures and creating number sentences to solve problems finding a FRACTION OF A NUMBER. This is a concept that we have spent a lot of time on and are continuing to work on. We have been DIVIDING the whole number into EQUAL groups.

We created pictures using fractions.
