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.
