This week we are going to start looking at fractions. Your first task is to make some shapes using paper.
Cut out a square, rectangle, circle and triangle.
Can you fold each shape in half?
How many halves are there in each shape?
If you have split your shape in half is each half the same?
Are they equal?
Find some objects around the house you can cut in half (with your grown up) e.g. a biscuit, a piece of fruit, a slice of bread, cube of cheese etc.
Remember you are cutting your food into two, equal halves. Take some pictures of your food. What is the same? What is different? Do all your halves look the same?
What circles have been cut into half equally?
