On Friday, we continued our work on fractions, decimals and percentages. We started looking at how we could find the percentage of something when we had an amount that was more than or less than 100. To help us, we took to the school car park.
We found a row of 20 cars, and from this row were were able to work out some fraction, decimal and percentage amounts of the colours of the cars. Here is some of our work. We recorded it on the footpath so everyone could see.

In class at the moment we have been learning about fractional and decimal numbers and being able to convert between the two (for example, understanding that 0.42 is the same as 42/100). Today we were introduced to percentages and how they link to decimal numbers.
