Reasoning - Problem Solving - Number (KS1) and Fraction of an Amount (KS2) - 10th March
There are two problems for KS1 and three for KS2.

In the KS1 problems children have to use information to find the cost of particular items or length of strips of paper. Children could be encouraged to use strip diagrams or bar models to solve the problems.

At KS2 the problems involve fractions of amounts. Some of the questions are quite challenging. Again bar modelling can be used if you want to solve the majority of these problems. If you want more info on bar modelling feel free to email the Maths Hub.

Every day in March the White Rose Maths Hub is aiming to put out a question of the day.

Tweet us @WRMathsHub a picture of your children's answers for a chance to win a prize.
