22.6.20 - Fractions
This week we are learning about fractions. A fraction is shown using two digits, the top digit is the numerator which shows how many parts are counted. The bottom digit, is the denominator which tells us how many parts the whole is shared into.
Choose an object from your house that you have more than one of. Maybe shoes, teddies, coins...

Halving is the inverse (opposite) of doubling.
Half of 6 = 3 Double 3 = 6
Can you create your own double ladybirds like in the picture? Or maybe you will create a butterfly or a different animal.
*Remember there needs to be 2 equal groups.
