This week we are going to be looking at fractions. We will be learning how to find a half and a quarter of objects/shapes and quantities.
Monday 28th June
WALT: find half of objects
Lets start by finding a half of a shape. If you have a piece of paper in your home, see if you can fold it in half. How did you fold is? Is there more than one way to fold it in half?
When we half objects, we are splitting them in 2. Each group should be equal (the same).
Go through the powerpoint to find out more on how to half objects.
Now you can have a go at today's activities.
For the first activity, you need to see you if can half the pictures. You can print them out and fold/cut them, or you can discuss each picture with an adult.
You can then have a go at the second worksheet. You an sort through the objects, deciding if they are cut in half or not.
Tuesday 29th June
WALT: find half of quantities
Yesterday we looked at halving objects. Can you remember how many groups we split the objects into?
Now we are going to be looking at find a half of a number! To do this, we will be equally halving the numbers into 2 groups.
Go through today's powerpoint to find out how to do it, you can also have a go at doing it yourself for the numbers given!
Just like you saw on the powerpoint, have a go at halving these numbers on the number cards. Make sure you draw your 2 circles to help you share the number and find half!
Once you feel confident with drawing 2 circles to half the numbers, have a go at today's worksheet.
Wednesday 30th June
WALT: find a quarter of objects
This week we are learnt about fractions. So far we have learnt how to find a half of a shape and a number. Can you remember how many groups you need to draw to help you?
Today we will be looking at how to find a quarter of objects. Find a picture of paper around your home. Split it in half, and then in half again. When you unfold it, how many pieces as your paper been divided into? You should see 4 groups! That means, when we divide a shape or a number into quarters, we are making 4 equal groups.
Go through the powerpoint to see some more shapes being divided into quarters.
Have a go and splitting these shapes into quarters. You have print the pictures and then cut/fold them, or you and discuss with an adult.
Now you can have a go at the worksheet. Look at the shapes and decide whether they have been split in half (2) or quarters (4).
Thursday 1st July
WALT: find a quarter of a quantity
Today is our last lesson on fractions! We have now learnt what a quarter is. Can you remember how many groups you split a shape into to find a quarter? You split it into 4!
Now we will be having a go at finding a quarter of a number! How many groups do you think we will need to draw? We will be drawing 4 circles. This is exactly the same as finding a half, we just need to add extra groups! Have a go at the powerpoint and draw your 4 circles to find a quarter of the numbers given.
Just like you saw on the powerpoint, have a go at find a quarter of these numbers on the number cards. Make sure you draw your 4 circles to help you share the number and find a quarter!
Once you feel confident with drawing 4 circles to find a quarter of the numbers, have a go at today's worksheet.
