This week, Year 5 have been cementing their knowledge of Fraction through the use of cuisenaire rods. We are now confidently using the helpful resource throughout the different areas of maths.
The children were using cuisenaire rods to identify fractions before identifying equivalent fractions.
They then went on to adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator. Some children progressed on to using the cuisenaire to add and subtract fractions with different denominators. The children found common denominators then added or subtracted using the rods.
The children always enjoy using the cuisenaire rods and are growing in confidence every time they use them.
