Count in Fractions Lesson

This Year 4 Count in Fractions lesson covers the prior learning of using a number line to represent fractions beyond a whole, before moving onto the main skill of exploring fractions greater than a whole on a number line.

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.
