L/O: Fractions S/C: Adding Fractions within 1

Children add fractions with different denominators again. The denominators are multiples of one another. It is important that children see this represented visually so they can make connections with the abstract. They will use the skills that they learned when finding equivalent fractions over the past couple of weeks.

Show how to change the ¼ into 2/8 on the chart. Children to copy this method so they understand the abstract pictorial methods.


From looking at the examples on the weekly plan, explain how these can be calculated quicker by finding converting one denominator to make it the same as the other. Model this on the board for children to copy. (How do you get from 6 to 12? (x2) so you multiply 1 by 2 and you will get 2/12) This will then lead to 2/12 + 5/12 = 7/12. Do other questions for children to answer on the board.
