Learning tricky Fractions

15th April 2016

Understanding the concept of fractions is very tricky for most children. In Year 2 we have been revising ¼, ½, ¾ and mixed numbers. The children have been encouraged to count in halves and quarters to 5. Please bear this in mind when you cut up pizzas and cakes! Practical experience is an essential part of learning.

We have also started our history topic on seaside holidays in the past and present. We have plotted important annual holidays on a timeline. We all look forward to the long summer holiday we plotted on our timeline.

We have been comparing types of seeds and welcome any collection of seeds to look at during our science lessons.
