    Year 2 Fractions: Unit Fractions

    The new primary curriculum for mathematics is more demanding than before, with fractions introduced in Year 1 and studied in more detail in Year 2. This lesson is appropriate for developing very basic understanding of fractions, with pupils splitting various objects into equal sized parts and describing these parts with fractions. This is the first in a series of Year 2 fractions lesson plans, and should be followed by Fractions: Other simple fractions, Fractions: Fractions of quantities and Fractions: Fractions as numbers.

    Pupils will learn:

    • How to find unit fractions (1/2, 1/3, 1/4) of objects.
