Fun Fractions!

Maths in Year 4 and 5!

Today, we began to revise what we already know about Fractions and began to think about our new Fractions topic. We each had a box of smarties and represented each colour as a fraction. We grouped our smarties and linked this to addition and subtraction of fractions, thinking about why we only add/subtract the numerator. We then linked this to place value and parts of a whole (parts of a whole Smarties pack!).
