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.
We have been learning how to order fractions. 1 whole is bigger than 1/2 and 1/2 is bigger than 1/4.
|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.|
