Week 9 Maths Challenges - Fractions

This week, your Maths is going to focus on Fractions.  I know you were brilliant at this last year in Year 2 so I know you'll be able to rise to the challenge for these questions.  

The lessons on BBC Bitesize this week are also based around fractions so why don't you have a look and see what else you can learn!

Questions for you to complete

Section 1: Recognising tenths

Section 2: Modelling tenths
