A Year 5 maths lesson about fractions is demonstrated Year 5 teacher Sophie Crump, at Burnham-on-Crouch Primary School, presents her lesson on fractions. The objective of her lesson is to help her pupils understand that fractions are part of a whole.
After starting with a recap of the language of fractions, the class get to make their own fraction wall. Strips of A3 papers are used, which are then cut up into ½, 1/3, ¼, 1/5 and so on. Different colours are used for each fraction and then compared to help show equivalence.
This programme is part of the KS2 Maths Lesson Planning Pack on Fractions, Decimals and Percentages, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
