Fractions Greater Than 1 Lesson

This Year 4 Fractions Greater Than 1 lesson covers the prior learning of adding fractions with the same denominator where the total is less than 1, before moving onto the main skill of partitioning fractions greater than 1 into wholes and parts.

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.
