Over the next few weeks the children will be learning about fractions. They will build upon their knowledge of a whole and how that whole can be partitioned in to equal parts.
This is hopefully going to incorporate their place value and their division skills.
This week 1.6.20 we are focusing on what makes a half.
Our Stem sentence (definition): A half is one part of two equal parts that make a whole. - Please encourage you child to say this when seeing it!
We will first work practically and look at halves in many different forms.
At this stage they do not need to know that it can be written as 1/2
3.6.2020 Miss Sexton's class have grasped the concept of a half, they can halve shapes and amounts so hence the lessons have progressed to finding equal parts and quarters.
Please go at your child's pace, there isn't any rush! These resources will stay up for as long as you would like!
