Term 5 - Fractions
We have worked super hard this term on fractions. We have looked and both unit and non-unit fractions. We have recognised 1/2, 1/4 and 1/3 of a shape and started to find 1/2, 1/4 and 1/3 of an amount. Using a bar model has really helped up to share the whole into equal parts. Below are pictures of us finding 1/3 of 9. We shared the whole (9) between 3 equal parts of a bar model. We found that 1/3 of 9 = 3. We used this strategy to help us find 1/3 of other amounts.
Term 4 - Shape
Since coming back from Lockdown 3.0 we have continued to learn about 2D and 3D shapes. The children have really enjoyed this unit and it has made a nice change from the large amount of number work we did during home learning and the live lessons.
The child have been on a 3D shape hunt around the school, what shapes can you see?
Here are our maths learning wall photographs. We have worked very hard on this topic recognising numbers to 100 and representing numbers in a variety of ways.
