What is a half?

We have been learning all about fractions and what a fraction is. We decided that a fraction is fair. It needs to be the same shape, same size or the same number. 
We have also been doing loads of thinking and problem solving in our maths. We think problem solving is hard but we are very proud of our learning!

WALT: find the fractions of sets and shapes.
Success Criteria
  • I can use what I know to solve problems
  • I can use a picture to show my thinking
  • I can use materials to show my thinking
  • My shares are fair (the same shape, same size or the same number)

Ryan you used the play dough to find half of a shape and you can use the beans to find half of a set. Your halves are fair - they are the same shape, size or number.
Your next step is to use this understanding to find other fractions like quarters and thirds.

Reading

Ryan and the chalk

Ryan and Tracey went outside and used the chalk. Ryan drew around Tracey and Tracey drew around Ryan. I wonder who else might join them...

"Every colour is my favourite" said Ryan "but not the white ones because they are toffee ones".
