For the next few weeks, our work is all about fractions (eventually moving onto decimals and percentages). This week we have looked at what a fraction is and how to find a fraction of an amount.
The children can all use equipment (cubes/counters) to do this and many have moved onto using the bar model and even visualising the fraction and writing the calculations needed. See some of the wonderful work below to help you understand how to find a fraction of a number. James, Sophie, Jodee, Olivia and Rachel have made a video to show this concept.
