In year 5 we are currently working on fractions. We have been using numicon to help us understand new concepts like mixed numbers, improper fractions and equivalent fractions.
We have been problem solving with fractions and some of us played a game where we had to find equivalent fractions. The group then decided it would be a good idea to create fractions twister! Lots of possibilities to explore!
We also used numicon to help us add fractions with different denominators.
We have begun the summer term by learning about decimals.
We moved on to understanding decimals up to 3 decimal places and learning about thousandths.
