Finding quarters

Filed under: General News — Miss Davis at 4:38 pm on Thursday, May 3, 2018

This afternoon we had an explore. Recently we have been finding half of different amounts, and of food. However today we challenged ourselves to find a quarter of numbers. We used the cubes to explore and discussed with our partners. After that we played a game on the whiteboard which helped us to see what shapes looked like split in half and split into quarters. We will play the game again tomorrow, as it was requested!

Who can remember how to write half and quarter as a fraction?
