We love outdoor learning!

We have been learning all about number in maths.  Today we were using number lines, but instead of placing numbers we were placing fractions on the line! Instead of doing this in our maths books, we thought it would be fun to make a human number line outside!

After we had placed 1/2, we started to find it a bit tricky.

Lots of us thought that if the fraction has a bigger number on the denominator, then the fraction is bigger. After lots of resilience from the whole class we realised that if a fraction has a larger number on the denominator, then the whole has been split into more parts and therefore each part is smaller.

We now know that fractions are one whole split into equal parts!

What did you learn that you didn’t know before?
