Mathematics Year 4: (4F4) Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator

Mathematics Year 5: (5F2a) Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number [for example, 2/5 + 4/5 = 6/5 = 1 1/5 ]

Mathematics Year 5: (5F4) Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number
