Monday

This week we will be looking at fractions, particularly concentrating on 1/2 (half) and 1/4 (quarter).

To find a 1/4, you just need to find 1/2 and then find 1/2 of that.

Watch the YouTube video to find out more.

Look around the house for objects, such as Lego, crayons, playing cards and see if you can divide them into piles of 1/2 and then 1/4. If you're lucky enough to have pizza or cake then again try dividing these into 1/2 and 1/4.

Remember, if you are dividing by 1/2, put them in TWO piles, but if you're dividing by 1/4, put them into FOUR piles.

Fill a jug with water and try to fill a cup 1/4 or 1/2 full from it.

CHALLENGE: can you complete any of the above activities finding 3/4 ?

Tuesday

Look at yesterdays work to remind yourself of how to find a 1/2 and a 1/4. Today we'll be using shapes and shading them in by 1/4 and a 1/2.

Remember, to find a 1/4, you just need to find 1/2 and then find 1/2 of that.

Complete the sheet – you only need to do the first 2 pages, but you can do them all if you want to!

If you can't print the sheet out then draw your own shapes.
Wednesday
