LO: I can understand what a unit fraction is. 


This is the beginning of the fractions topic. We begin with what a unit fraction is. 

Follow the Powerpoint to explain what it is and then I would like the children to use something in the house to show me what a unit fraction is giving 2 examples. 


E.g. Cutting a pizza into quarters and show me 1/4 of the pizza OR having a block of 6 cubes and showing me 1/6 of the tower. 


I have done a video to show you what I mean, try and be as creative as you can be and enjoy! Remember to send them into me. 


Once you have done this first challenge if you would like to challenge yourself see if you can do me a list of unit fractions and a list of non unit fractions.
