In Maths we have been working hard on fractions and are starting to learn about equivalent fractions. Today, to help with our initial understanding, we worked in pairs to build a fraction wall. We used strips of paper and started with 1 strip at the top to create a whole. We then folded paper to create sections according to the denominator from halves to twelfths. We then looked at lines that matched up and explored why for example 1/2 is equal to 2/4 and 1/3 is equal to 2/6. We then used our knowledge of fractions of an amount and cubes to check these. For example 1/3 of 12 is 4 2/6 of 12 is also 4.
