Chocolate fractions


Recently we have been learning to calculate fractions of amounts and to add fractions.

We were set a challenge to calculate various fractions of a bar of chocolate and then work out which fraction would give us the biggest piece!

The fact that we had real chocolate to work with gave us all extra incentive to calculate accurately and to recognize the operations and which number to use.


Our fraction star  was awarded an extra square of chocolate for her perseverance and resilience. She is now a fraction champion!
