Numeracy Week 5/6 – Fractions


Posted by misscarey | Posted in Numeracy | Posted on 02/03/2016

We have had a lot of fun learning about fractions over the last week and a half. Most of us understand that a fraction is an equal part of a whole.

Miss Carey made fractions really fun for us the first day by getting us to write and draw fractions about a packet of m&ms.

We made fracterpillars. They were a lot of fun to make. We had to learn how to fold shapes into equal parts. We found out the triangles can be tricky to fold. Don’t our fracterpillars make our classroom look great?!

We also made our very own fraction walls to use during maths. We have been using them to compare the size of fractions and to find equivalent fractions.

Another fun thing was playing against a partner to fill a fraction wall on our netbooks. You would get a fraction and you would have to work out how to colour it in. Gio worked out that you could colour 1/2 in by colouring in 1/4+2/8 if there weren’t enough fourths or eighths. You can play this game at home by following the link

Miss Carey made some games for us to play, to help us learn to find equivalent fractions and add fractions better. They were good fun. We were really excited about the Star Wars Go Fish game.
