Yr 2: fractions and dragons!

This week we have started looking at fractions. This is a high level thinking topic and the children have worked extremely well to understand such a tricky concept!

We started the week looking at equal parts as each fraction is an equal part of a whole, then by the end of the week we have been finding half, quarter and thirds of amounts!  Here are a few pictures of us sorting sweets into groups, always remembering to make sure each group was equal.

Our English this week has been just as exciting! Our focus is fantasy stories. We have spent time describing spooky, funny and even friendly dragons. We have also explored the texts in more detail to find the features of a fantasy text.  We found lots of expanded noun phrases,  conjunctions and lots of punctuation which we are going to work hard to include in our own story writing next week.
