Fun with fractions in Year 6

To kick off our maths unit of work on fractions, children came in to the room to find 3 tables with different amounts of chocolate bars on them. They had to decide which table to sit at in order to get the most chocolate!

Initially, most people piled on to the table with the most chocolate bars. Louis, on the other hand, sat on his own on the table with one bar. Everyone soon realised Louis had made a wise decision!

After a quick discussion, everyone had a second go, this time using their mathematical understanding to work out where it would be best to sit! Then to the most exciting bit: eating the chocolate!
