The first topic the children will look at is how to find the area of a shape by counting squares.
The children will then learn to recognise and represent tenths and hundredths. They will then learn to identify equivalent fractions using a fraction wall and then using the fractions numerators and denominators. The children will learn to simplify fractions. Then the children will learn about fractions greater than one including mixed numbers and improper fractions.
At the end of the half term the children will continue their topic on fractions. The children will learn to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator. They will then solve problem solving questions involving adding and subtracting fractions.
