Finding Fractions Of Amounts

Friday 05 May 2023

Year 3 have been using counters to find fractions of numbers.

We used the counters to split the whole into equal parts and looked at how many counters were in one of the parts.
We also learnt that if we want to find 1/3 of a number, we can just divide the number by 3. Finding 1/4 means we divide the number by 4.
The children were really enthusiastic about this learning and loved the rare opportunity to draw on the tables!
Help at home: Practising times tables and division facts will really benefit our maths learning. We will need to use this lots to help us tackle new concepts.
