This week we are thinking about: half and quarters
Please use the maths hub resources/sheets this week. These can be found in the Year 1 section of the school website.
Underneath for each day will be other activities that can be done.
Find half of objects
Discuss that it is only in half if the two pieces are equal/the same.
Fold 2d shapes in half e.g cut out a square/circle/rectangle. Colour in half of the shape.
Find half of amounts
Maths hub sheet 2
Find quarters of objects
Take some fruit/veg/paper, practise cutting in quarters. making the object into 4 equal pieces.
Discuss that it is only in quarters if the four pieces are equal/the same.
Fold 2d shapes in quarters e.g cut out a square/circle/rectangle. Colour in one quarter of the shape.
Maths hub sheet 3
Find quarters of amounts
Count out differencing amounts of objects depending on child’s ability. Make sure they are numbers that can be divided by 4. Split these fairly into 4 groups. E.g one quarter of 12 = 3
Maths hub sheet 4
Can you find one half and one quarter of all these numbers?
12 20 16 18 28 32
Which number does not divide by both 2 and 4?
