We have spent a lot of time this half term studying fractions.

We have learnt about what a fraction is, how to add and subtract fractions with different denominators, how to simplify and convert fractions, and more recently we have been looking at multiplying fractions by whole numbers.  After half term, we will be exploring multiplying fractions by fractions and dividing fractions by whole numbers.

Here is a link to lots of games which our class would find useful to help practise.  We can also use IXL to practise calculating with fractions.

Children could write the success criteria (in a comment) for how to do this strategy to help develop  their understanding.  If you have any questions about this strategy, ask away in the comments or in class.
