Add and Subtract Fractions Lower KS2

This interactive Powerpoint (consisting of 18 interactive slides plus printables) helps pupils in lower KS2 to add and subtract fractions.


Adding and subtracting fractions is not something that pupils are likely to experience very often in real life (we would be more likely to use their decimal equivalents), so this is a rather abstract topic.


It is best to start with manipulatives then link this use to examples without manipulatives.


Statements are used to provoke discussion since pupils need to explain why they agree or disagree with the statement or give examples of the circumstances when the statement is true or false.


Games are also included to consolidate ideas and promote discussion by justifying choices. Instructions and demonstration slides for the games are provided, as well as printable resources, so that the games can be played as a whole class or within groups.
