We have been learning all about fractions and what a fraction is. We decided that a fraction is fair. It needs to be the same shape, same size or the same number.
We have also been doing loads of thinking and problem solving in our maths. We think problem solving is hard but we are very proud of our learning!
WALT: find the fractions of sets and shapes.

Reflection
My favourite part was: using materials like the jelly beans to help my learning when I was doing groups of.
It was really hard when: you had to figure out some of the questions like what is a third.
Something that really helped me was: using the materials and Kerri showing us how to do it lots of times.
Something new I learned was: what a half was and what a fraction is.
Kerri Thinks
What great learning about fractions you have done this term. I am pleased you use the materials to help you show your thinking. You can find fractions of shapes and sets like bags of lollies and your fractions are fair.
Even when questions are hard you think about what you know and how you are going to solve them. Problem solving can be tricky you need to think about what the question is asking and then think how you can use what you already know. Lots of thinking and drawing pictures can help you solve tricky problems. I love how you have a go and take some risks in your learning!!
Remember to keep on practising those maths facts at home  they are more tools to add to your maths solving toolbox.
