Week 2 Fractions

This week we will continue to work on Fractions, beginning with placing fractions on a number line. Children need to know how to divide a number line into specific fractions i.e. when dividing into quarters, we need to ensure our number line is divided into four equal parts. 

Next the children will build on their understanding of division  to find fractions of amounts. This will also help them to recap previous learning about place value and exchanging tens for ones. For more practise on place value see the place value revision booklet in maths resources.

The children will move on to applying their knowledge of numerators and denominators to find fractions of amounts and deepen their understanding through problem solving.

Finally the children will begin to learn about equivalent fractions. A fraction wall resource, to support their learning, can be found at the bottom of the page.


If you have any questions or need support with any of the maths work please feel free to email Mrs Holmes and Mrs Slater at
