Today in maths we used lego and cubes to make a stick of ten lego/cubes. We wrote the fractions of each colour we used.
Here are some children talking about that fraction of each colour they used.

What do you know about fractions?


  1. Amazing work Room 7!

    I love the way you were able to explain how many tenths of each colour you had.

    So if I had 3/10 yellow plus 2/10 red, how many tenths is that altogether?

  2. Hi Room 7
    I love Fractions because I know how much of the yummy cake I made I will get!
    If there are 4 people in my family, and we each have a piece every night for 3 nights, I get:

    1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 = 3/12 (or 1/4)

    of the whole cake!

    Yum Yum Yum.
