Year 2 Maths of the Day – March 2017
Today in our Active Maths of the Day session we completed two activities based on fractions.
Activity 1 First we got into 5 teams. We collected a card from the ‘Fraction Pot’ After running back to the team we showed each other the card e.g. 1/2 of 6 =? As a group, we worked out the answer and collected the answer (3) pieces of treasure from the centre pot. Finally we repeated it until the Treasure Pot was empty. We counted to see who had the most treasure.
Activity 2 First we split our mixed ability class into teams of 3. Then we took it in turns to run to a ‘Fraction Pot’. We took a card and returned to our team and decided whether it was a 1/2, 1/4, 1/3 or 3/4 and put it in the appropriate pile. Finally we continued until the Fraction Pot was empty. It was so much fun and we learnt lots about fractions!
