What is a Fraction?

After learning about place value and the four operations so far this term, we have now moved on to fractions, which we will focus on until the end of the autumn term. Today we were thinking about what a fraction is as well as equivalent fractions and representing them using cuisenaire rods and numicon. We will also learn about comparing and ordering fractions; adding and subtracting fractions; multiplying and dividing fractions by integers and proper fractions; and finding a fraction of an amount. Throughout this, the children will have lots of opportunities to reason and problem solve.
