This week in Year 5 we are learning about fractions and decimals. We started our topic on Monday by identifying equivalent fractions. The children had to put together a cut up fraction wall then use this to find pairs of equivalent fractions. They were then able to identify mathematical connections between the pairs. We finished the lesson by using multiplication or division to find missing numerators or denominators from equivalent fraction pairs. Miss Charlton was very impressed with how hard the children worked and how well they understood this tricky concept.
