This week in maths we are exploring fractions.
Discuss with your adult what a fraction is?
A fraction is a part of an object or an amount.
Our learning objective for today is
L.O. Explore finding half of a shape.
Activity – Find some objects you can draw around in your house. This could be a small book to make a square or rectangle, cup and plate to make a circle. See if you find any unusual shapes.
Now see if you can find half of the shapes you have drawn.
Remember – you should have 2 equal pieces.
At dinnertime or teatime, have a look what your adult has prepared for you. If it’s a sandwich, can you find half of it? If you are having fishfingers – can you cut it into half?
Extra activity – purplemash- Fraction wall. You should find it in your 2do folder.This game can be played on phones and tablets – use the arrows on the screen to direct the bricks.
