## Exploring Fractions

- The first group gives you some starting points to explore with your class, which are applicable to a wide range of ages. The tasks in this first group will build on children's current understanding of fractions and will help them get to grips with the concept of the part-whole relationship.
- The second group of tasks focuses on the progression of ideas associated with fractions, through a problem-solving lens. So, the tasks in this second group are curriculum-linked but crucially also offer opportunities for learners to develop their problem-solving and reasoning skills.

- are applicable to a range of ages;
- provide contexts in which to explore the part-whole relationship in depth;
- offer opportunities to develop conceptual understanding through talk.

## What your child will learn

Understand and count in tenths.

In Year 3, your child will learn to count in tenths. They will understand that finding a tenth is the same as dividing by ten (by dividing objects, sets of objects, and numbers into ten equal parts).

This will help them to keep seeing the connection between fractions and division. It is possible that your child will start to be introduced to decimals at this stage, too.

## Find fractions of a set of objects

Your child will learn to find and write fractions of a given number of objects. For example:

Find of 15. First, your child can find of 15 by dividing the total by the denominator : 15 ÷ 5 = 3. Then, they can multiply this result by the numerator to find the correct fraction: If of 15 is 3, then of 15 is 3 × 2 = 6. of 15 is therefore 6.

Your child will be able to do this with unit and non-unit fractions. They will learn that:

## Use fractions as numbers

Your child will be able to do this with unit and non-unit fractions:

## Show equivalent fractions using diagrams

They’ll show their understanding of equivalent fractions by drawing diagrams like this:

Your child will also learn to use objects and fraction walls to show equivalent fractions.

## Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator

## Compare and order fractions

Solve problems that involve all of the above.

Finally, your child will learn to put all this learning into practice by solving problems involving fractions.

They will be able to relate fractions to division, count in fractional steps (for example, counting up and down in tenths), compare fractions, understand unit and non-unit fractions , understand equivalent fractions, find fractions of amounts, and add and subtract fractions with the same denominator.

## How to help at home

There are lots of everyday ways you can help your child to understand fractions. Here are just a few ideas.

## 1. Make fraction snowflakes

Paper folding can be a great way to explore fractions.

Decorate a piece of paper or card and then ask your child to fold the paper into different equal parts. For example, they could fold the paper into fifths by creating five equal sections. Ask them to show you a fifth, two-fifths, three-fifths, four-fifths, and five-fifths, which they can see is equivalent to a whole.

Challenge your child by giving the paper a value and asking them to work out what the fractions would be worth. What would one fifth represent if the whole paper had a value of 10? As they fold, they may like to cut patterns into the paper to make a ‘snowflake’ and watch the pattern develop as they fold further.

## 2. Have fun with food

Cake, pizza, or any foods with a regular shape can help children understand what fractions are and how they work. Ask your child questions like, ‘If I cut our cake into 8 pieces, what fraction will each piece be?’

Foods that people eat lots of can help your child understand how to find fractions of amounts. For example:

‘We have 12 fish fingers in the packet. There are 4 of us. What fraction of the fish fingers can we each have? How many fish fingers would that be?’

## Activity: Cupcake fractions

## 3. Compare fractions together

In Year 3, your child will compare unit fractions and fractions with the same denominator by saying which fraction is bigger or smaller – and explaining how they know.

## 4. Fraction countdown

‘Would you prefer it if I cut this cake into ten equal pieces and gave you a piece, or if I cut the cut into two equal pieces and gave you a piece?’

Print out the Fraction Match activity sheet and cut out each fraction card. Take a selection of cards and see if your child can put them all in order, either from largest to smallest or smallest to largest. Are there any equivalent fractions? See if your child can match them up.

## Activity: Fraction Match

## 5. Make a fraction wall

Equivalent fractions are different fractions that have the same value. In Year 3, your child will learn about equivalent fractions with small denominators using drawings and diagrams.

Why not try making a fraction wall with your child? You could investigate using the computer to make your fraction wall by creating a table and splitting each row into the equal number of parts you need. For example, to represent fifths, you would have to split the whole row into five equal parts.

Alternatively, you can download our fraction wall below.

## Fraction wall

## 6. Adding and subtracting fractions

Try adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator with your child. Try to do this within a whole, i.e. make sure that the sum uses numbers less than one, including the answer.

Using drawings or diagrams can help your child visualise adding and subtracting fractions. For example:

+ = This could be calculated using a diagram like this: Y our child will first split the whole into five equal parts. Your child can then shade one box to represent and two boxes to represent . They will then be able to see that the total is .

## Fraction Worksheets for Year 3 (age 7-8)

Children coming into Year 3 should have a sound understanding of simple fractions, especially halves, quarters and thirds. They should have had plenty of practical experience dividing shapes and sets of objects into quarters and thirds.

There are plenty of new concepts on fractions to be understood in Year 3,but it is still important to use practical work, using shapes and objects, to help with understanding. A key step is to begin working with tenths and recognising that tenths arise from dividing an object into ten equal parts. Later this can be developed to dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10. This is crucial for understanding our decimal system and understanding that a fraction such as three tenths can also be represented as a decimal (0.3) and connects to dividing 3 by 10. Counting in tenths can also help enormously with this. We have a great selection of worksheets which deal with writing tenths, counting in tenths and converting tenths to decimals.

Other fractions are also introduced, such as fifths, and equivalence between fractions is developed with the help of pictures and diagrams. This leads on to ordering fractions with the same denominator. One of the quirks of fractions, which some children find hard to understand, is that as the denominator gets larger the size of the number gets smaller (e.g. one tenth is smaller than one fifth; one twentieth is smaller than one tenth and so on). We have some excellent ordering fractions pages for Year 3 to help consolidate this concept. As well as these, some of our most popular worksheets are the sets of finding fractions of numbers, with questions such as ‘What is one sixth of 30?’ Again, the link between fractions and division needs to be constantly reinforced.

As the year progresses children will be introduced to adding and subtracting fractions, but only with the same denominator and with totals up to one whole one. Simplifying fractions is important at this stage and children should be encouraged to write fractions in their simplest form. (e.g. two sixths can be simplified to one third).

All this will lead onto much more on decimals and fractions in Year 4, including hundredths and further work on equivalence. If you child is finding the Year 3 work difficult then it is important to go back to Year 2, or even Year 1, and see what is understood and what concepts have not been fully understood.
