This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with recognising, finding and naming a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or quantity. It gently introduces them to fractions.
Halving numbers or groups of objects is often young children’s first experience of fractions. They may relate this to cutting one object in two, dividing by two or sharing one group into two equal parts. Children should recognise that for halving to be accurate, both parts should be equal in size or amount.
