Main Lesson - Yesterday we learnt about half and quarter fractions and learnt how to identify them. Today we are going to introduce a third and 3 quarter fractions.

Now that you are more familiar with what these new fractions look like, have a go at the interactive activity below by clicking the link. You will need to identify halves, quarters, thirds and three quarters of shapes! See how many you can get -

You should be quite confident at this by now so what I would like you to do is have a go at making your own pizza or cake (you can choose) using a paper plate or by drawing it onto paper.

Once you have drawn your pizza or cake I would like you to cut it into halves and label each half as a fraction.

Once you have done this make another pizza or cake and divide it into quarters and finally make another one and divide it into thirds.

Once you have made your 3 pizzas or cakes and labelled each part as a fraction take a picture of it and send it to your teacher.
