Tuesday 23rd February


In this lesson, you will build upon our understanding of the whole and parts of a whole. We will explore the ideas around equal and unequal parts, using drawings and practical resources to help and support us.

We will begin by discussing how fractions are equal parts and then we will practise splitting shapes into equal parts. Next we will incorporate numbers, using diagrams to help us to split numbers. We will look at how our times tables will help us to do this.
