The ongoing pursuit to become fraction champions continue!
The children have been increasing their confidence and familiarity when working with fractions; they can compare, order, add and subtract. Where the denominators of fractions are different, the children are now confident in identifying and converting to a common denominator before adding or subtracting. As you can see in the image above, the children have been using different strategies to help them solve faction problems through their excellent systematic presentation.
However, we're not finished just yet! The children will face their next challenge this week: multipliying fractions. Not to fear, as the Year 5's relentless determination and thirst for a challenge will help them conquer this concept too. We look forward to the next phase of their learning journey.
