P6/7 have been learning all about fractions. We have been experimenting with different types of fractions and finding fractions of quantities. Last week we used smarties to investigate non-unit fractions. We counted the number of smarties we had altogether and made this our denominator, then we counted how many of each colour we had for the numerator. This helped us to work out what fraction of each colour we had in our tubes. Some of us then challenged ourselves to simplify, order and compare these fractions. The children enjoyed the activity- especially eating their smarties at the end!
