In Numeracy we are focusing on fractions. Fractions are parts of a whole, whether it be a number or objects!
LO: I can identify halves and quarters of shapes and amounts.
Halves- When we are looking at halves we are writing the fraction ½. Halving means we are going to be dividing a shape or amount into two equal parts.
Quarters- When we are looking at quarters we are writing the fraction ¼. When working with quarters, we are dividing a shape or amount into four equal parts.
Amounts- a number or quantity.
