Fractions with sweets

Year 4 have started their new topic of fractions. In order to understand fractions of quantities, the children used sweets. They worked in pairs and were given a set amount of them. They were then asked to show different fractions including a half, three quarters, two thirds and four sixths. We discussed fraction families and simple ways of working out the fractions going forward. The children enjoyed working out the fractions using sweets as they were able to eat a tasty treat at the end!
