Just been informed than an advisor is coming in to watch lessons on Thursday. We've been told to stick to our timetables so she'll be seeing me teach Year 5, finding fractions of amounts. Anyone got a more fun, interactive way of finding fractions of amounts than divide-denominator, multiply-numerator? They used smarties last year so don't really want to repeat that. I'm planning on getting my lower ability children to find halves, quarters, tenths, moving onto finding e.g. 3/4, 8/11 etc for the more able. Any ideas would be really great- I'm panicking already!
