Today's literacy activity.

Maths activity

Today you are going to carry on learning about quarters. It is a practical lesson and you will need some counters so please use whatever you have a lot of whether it's lego, buttons or sweets! Work through the PowerPoint presentation lesson 3 and use your counters to share equally into four parts. Discuss the following questions:


How many altogether?

How many equal parts are we splitting it into to find a quarter?
Does this quantity represent a quarter?
How can we check our answer?

A quarter of __ = __. 

___ is a quarter of ___. 


Then complete the practical activity by using counters to find a quarter of a quantity. The lesson is all about sharing quantities into four equal parts. It's fine if you find it easier to do this by halving and then halving again.

Here's the link for the afternoon activities.

Hope you enjoy the story.
