Today you will be learning about finding fractions of an amount. Think about using a bar model to help you. Split your bar model into the same number as your denominator, so if you are finding 1/4 of a number, your bar needs to be divided into 4 equal parts. You then share the amount you are finding a fraction of into your bar model using your jottings. You would then count how many jottings you have in 1 box (as one is the numerator of the fraction), this will then give you your answer.
