Teaching fractions in Year 6

by Emmanuel Church of England Primary School, Camden
Claire Burns; Madeline Bond; Fran Guglielmoni

They often brought a number of misconceptions that we had to resolve before we could move on. Our aim was to develop an approach to teaching the topic that we could share and develop across the school.
