Add and Subtract Fractions 1 Lesson

This Year 6 Add and Subtract Fractions 1 lesson covers the prior learning of adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator, before moving onto the main skill of adding and subtracting fractions where denominators are multiples of one another.
The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. 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.
