If you have been following the White Rose Hub free home learning pack you will be experts at fractions already! If you haven’t try Week 1 Lesson 5

Here are some examples of how to find a quarter:

  1. Count the number of counters.
  2. Split your page into four.
  3. Share the dots equally (don’t forget to cross them out every time you’ve shared them) It is a good idea to go round in a circle so you never miss a section.
  4. Count how many there are in 1 of the quarters.
  5. Check you have the same amount in each quarter. They all must be equal.


  1. Count the number of boxes (eg 8).
  2. Split your page into four
  3. Put a dot each of the sections at a time, counting as you go. Make sure you stop when you get to the number of boxes you counted (eg 8).
  4. Count how many there are in 1 of the quarters (eg 4).
  5. Check you have the same amount in each quarter. They all must be equal.
  6. Shade one quarter  of the boxes (eg shade 4 boxes).

Your naughty toy has been found! The newspapers want you to create a newspaper report for them to publish explaining what has happened.  Think again about the following questions:

What have they done?

When did they do it?

Why might they have done it?

Who else was involved?

Did anyone see them?

Today you must plan your report. Here are some ideas for how to plan:

  • Role play using the props you had yesterday.
  • Draw three boxes and in each box draw part of what happened
  • Create 3 ‘scenes’ out of LEGO that show what happened
  • Create a story map like the one below, using the questions to help you.

Keep your plan for tomorrow so that you can use it to write your report.

I found 5
