    Year 2 Fractions: Other Simple Fractions

    The new primary curriculum for mathematics is more rigorous than before, with fractions introduced in Year 1 and studied in greater detail in Year 2. In this lesson, pupils take part in a restaurant role play to introduce non-unit fractions, such as 3/4 and learn the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2. This is the second in a series of Year 2 fractions lesson plans. It should be preceded by Fractions: Unit fractions and followed by Fractions: Fractions of quantities and Fractions: Fractions as numbers.

    Pupils will learn:

    • Learn how to find non-unit fractions of objects
    • Learn the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2
