Continuity in fractions learning between Year 5 and Year 8

A discussion around how learning about fractions builds across the four transition years from KS1 to KS2, set in a context of a Maths Hubs national project looking at continuity of maths learning generally from Year 5 to Year 8.

Show notes:

Taking part in the discussion are:

  • Nicki Ashton, primary maths consultant in the London Borough of Wandsworth, and also leading a Work Group for the London South West Maths Hub.
  • Alison Hopper, one of the NCETM’s Assistant Directors for primary maths.
  • Robert Wilne, maths lead for a family of primary and secondary schools in London and Kent, and leading Work Groups for two London Maths Hubs.
  • Steve McCormack, NCETM Communications Director.

You can find articles on the same theme as this podcast in two NCETM publications: Robert Wilne wrote about continuity in learning about subtraction in the January 2018 Primary Magazine. The January issue of the Maths Hubs newsletter, Bespoke, featured a breakdown of what incremental fractions learning might look like from Year 5 to Year 8.
