Comparing and ordering fractions through physical education

This morning, year 6 took to the outdoor school grounds to play a throwing game in pairs (then groups of 4). Children were tasked with getting an object in a target. As a result different fractions were created from the vary throw amounts each child had.

Using the information collected, children had to calculate equivalence from their fractions (e.g. 3 throws out of 5 compared to 2 throws out of 15) to work out fraction size and then order these from smallest to largest.

We also managed to get some vitamin d! 🙂
