Today we started learning about fractions. We now know that halves are made of 2 pieces and we know what the symbol for half looks like. We learnt why it is important that the pieces are the same size when Miss Nicholas was sharing a piece of liquorice with Tessa. Tessa was not impressed with a smaller piece!
Miss Nicholas set up 5 stations around the room where we had to make half. We had to pour half a cup of water, write the symbol for half, cut a playdough pizza in half, draw a pattern on half a whiteboard, fill half an egg carton with teddies (some of us even noticed that half of 6 is 3!!) and colour half a strap of 'liquorice'. We took photos as we went around, then when we were finished we made used the PicCollage app to show all the different ways we made half.
