A piece of cake!

Year 3 maths - Fractions

This week year 3 have started their work on fractions. They have been learning about the numerator and denominator, recognising how many equal parts make a whole. To help their understanding, the teachers cut up a cake into 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s. Much to the children's disappointment, the teachers ate the cakes in the staffroom afterwards. However, it was a simple but practical way to cement the idea of how many parts equal to one whole!
