Fun Fractions

This week the Year One children have been learning about fractions. The children became builders at the Primary Building Company. They were challenged to find half of a quantity. They had to weigh cubes (bricks), measure the wool (wood) and measure the water (for the cement). The children were able to use their mathematical knowledge to work out how they were going to find half. To get the right weight they had to move cubes from one side to the other to make the scales balance, they folded the wool to find the middle and poured half the water into another container which was the same. The children worked out the correct amount of each material to build the house! Great work Kingfishers.
