Year 6 Fractions

Year 6 FractionsFocus this week on Year 6 Fractions

Some of the hardest Year 6 Maths can be found in the Fractions, Decimals and Percentages strand. Fortunately, we have an extensive range of resources to help with this and we have also just reorganised them to make finding exactly what you want easier and quicker.

The resources are now organised into sub-categories to include:

Understanding and ordering fractions
This includes understanding equivalent fractions, improper and proper fractions and ordering fractions.

Decimals and fractions
Using decimal notation and working with decimals up to thousandths are part of this section as well as understanding the relationship between decimals and fractions, converting between the two.

Rounding decimal fractions
Rounding decimals including to the nearest tenth and hundredth. Also rounding amounts of money, which can prove to be quite tricky.

Addition and subtraction of fractions
This becomes quite difficult as children are expected to add and subtract fractions with different denominators as well as working with mixed numbers.

Multiplying and dividing fractions
Year 6 children are only expected to multiply simple pairs of proper fractions and to divide proper fractions by whole numbers.

Finding percentages of numbers and solving problems involving percentages are an important part of work in Year 6.
We continue to add further resources to our fractions category and even more can be found in our KS2 Maths SATs Booster section where we have a great collection of worksheets all based on the most recent test papers.
