Fraction Relay

 We had fraction relays today. In teams we had to race each other to fill our containers up with different fractions of water. As well as learning about fractions and capacity we had lots of fun on a hot day.

Ready set go!
It is tricky working out 1/4 when the container
isn't see through
Measuring and checking it is 1/4 full.

Measuring to check the container is 1/2 full.
Running with a half full container
Is our bucket half full yet?

The whole relay
We had to be careful we didn't spill any. It had to be a whole container of water.
We have been learning how to order fractions. 1 whole is bigger than 1/2 and 1/2 is bigger than 1/4.



  1. Great work room 5 it was a hot day. Yes it is they hard to see 1/4 of water in an ice cream container.
    Keep up the fractions room 5!

  2. I really liked learning 1/4 and 1/2
