Would you like to put your children's knowledge of all areas of fractions into practice but in a fun way? Check out our Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Fractions Conquer Maths Activity. This resource has been designed to cover all areas of fractions, including decimals and percentages, from year 1 up to year 6 where these topics are appropriately covered. It consists of a teacher's guide with rules on how to play the game, tips on how to use the cards and game boards, a reminder of the differentiation, a set of game boards (one for each strand of the curriculum), the card placement mat and a tally table for each level of differentiation and maths strand.

This game is ideally played with two or three children in an adult-led activity. Children take turns to roll a die and move around the game board. They answer questions to 'conquer' a continent with extra opportunities when they land on stars. The game is won when one player conquers all continents. The question cards are differentiated across different year groups, so that you can play with different ability children. You could also play along with different maths strands with the same ability children; the options on how you use this are endless!

- Recognise, find and name a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or quantity
- Recognise, find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity
- Recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/3 , 1/4 , 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity
- Write simple fractions for example, 1/2 of 6 = 3
- Count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10
- Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators
- Recognise and use fractions as numbers: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators
- Recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators
- Compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators
- Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole [for example, 5/7 + 1/7 = 6/7 ]
- Solve problems that involve 3F1 - 3F4
- Count up and down in hundredths; recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object by one hundred and dividing tenths by ten
- Recognise and show, using diagrams, families of common equivalent fractions
- Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator
- Recognise and write decimal equivalents to 1/4 , 1/2 , 3/4
- Recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundredths
- Round decimals with one decimal place to the nearest whole number
- Compare numbers with the same number of decimal places up to two decimal places
- Find the effect of dividing a one- or two-digit number by 10 and 100, identifying the value of the digits in the answer as ones, tenths and hundredths
- Solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities, including non-unit fractions where the answer is a whole number
- Solve simple measure and money problems involving fractions and decimals to two decimal places
- 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 ]
- Identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths
- Compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number
- Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number
- Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams
- Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = 71/100]
- Recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents
- Round decimals with two decimal places to the nearest whole number and to one decimal place
- Read, write, order and compare numbers with up to three decimal places
- Solve problems involving number up to three decimal places
- Recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to ‘number of parts per hundred’, and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal
- Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of 1/2 , 1/4 , 1/5 , 2/5 , 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25
- Use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination
- Compare and order fractions, including fractions > 1
- Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions
- Multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form [for example, 1/4 × 1/2 = 1/8]
- Divide proper fractions by whole numbers [for example, 1/3 ÷ 2 = 1/6 ]
- Associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents [for example, 0.375] for a simple fraction [for example, 3/8]
- Identify the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1,000 giving answers up to three decimal places
- Multiply one-digit numbers with up to two-decimal places by whole numbers
- Use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places
- Solve problems which require answers to be rounded to specified degrees of accuracy
- Recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts
