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.

Please send us photos of your work.

Tuesday

Look at yesterday's 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'll only need to do the first page.

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