This STEM activity introduces pupils to fractions by giving them the opportunity to cut a pizza in a range of ways. Pupils will be able to show how pizza can be shared into equal parts and recognise halves and quarters as part of a whole unit. This activity could be used as a starter or main activity to introduce fractions and can be developed further with other objects and a combination of halves and quarters. This activity supports the Year 1 Maths curriculum and has been provided by the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology).
