Guidance on the teaching of fractions in Key Stage 1
Spine 3: Fractions – Topic 3.0
The Fractions spine is divided into 10 segments for Years 3–6, plus a preliminary segment (3.0) with guidance notes on teaching fractions in Key Stage 1. For each of these segments we have produced a detailed teacher guide, including text and images.
For the 10 main segments, the images are also presented as animated PowerPoint slides, which further enhance teacher knowledge and can be used in the classroom (for best results, please view these in ‘Slideshow’ view; for some slides, supporting notes are provided in the ‘Notes’ section).
These materials are not, in any way, lesson plans, but they can be used in conjunction with a high-quality mastery textbook to support planning.
The following PDF offers an overview of the complete Fractions spine, including a synopsis of each segment.
