This week we have been exploring fractions and learning about finding quarters. We looked at what each number means when writing a fraction and began with finding a quarter of a shape. We quickly moved onto finding a quarter of objects and quantities. On Wednesday, we made pretend pizza's using different recipes. We had to share the correct amount of each topping equally into the 4 quarters of our pizza and then work out how many we would get on each quarter piece. On Thursday, we then had a brilliant lesson where we made and cooked tortilla pizzas. We divided and shared the tomatoes equally on each quarter and then cut our pizzas using the pizza cutter. It was an incredibly tasty maths lesson!
