Course Details

The yearly expectations within the new National Curriculum have increased for fractions.
However, this is a strand that teachers often find challenging to teach and children find
difficult to understand.


This one day course will explore the key concepts and ideas within the curriculum for fractions. We will explore contexts, problems and resources and models that support the teaching. This highly practical and interactive course will develop subject knowledge for teaching so that
teachers can move beyond procedural teaching and support pupils in developing a deeper long lasting understanding of fractions.


NB: This course can also be a part of the KS2 Subject Leader Maths Package (4 of 5 courses)




The course will include:

  • Development of subject knowledge and the role of models and contexts in
    supporting understanding
  • Consideration of the curriculum
    requirements from Early Years to Year 6
  • In depth exploration of key ideas: part /whole, equal sharing, fractions as division and equivalence, and how to teach them
  • Common difficulties and misconceptions and how best to pre-empt and tackle them
  • Motivating activities and key questions that promote understanding


What you can take home:

  • Ideas, activities and resources to
    support the teaching of fractions
  • Guidance on the requirements of the new curriculum in relation to fractions
  • Documents to support the assessment of mastery in fractions
