This week in Maths we have been learning about halving. We started the week with lots of practical activities, learning what fractions are.
We used shapes, play dough, string and other materials to explore halving.
By the end of the week we were looking at halving numbers. We have really impressed our teachers with how quickly we can recall our doubles and halves number facts. We played a pirate board game with our partners to consolidate our learning. It was so important to take turns with our partner and to play fairly. We had lots of fun!
Later in the week, we used role play to become chefs. First, we learnt how to write the fractions 1/2 and 1/4 and we recapped what these fractions mean. After that we followed ‘fraction recipes’ to make pizzas for our peers. We were all able to show 1/2 and 1/4 and some of us even noticed that 1/2 is the same as 2/4! Great work Year Ones!
