# Unit Fractions Lesson

This Year 2 Unit Fractions lesson covers the prior learning of recognising a half, a quarter and a third, before moving onto the main skill of recognising unit fractions.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
