This course has been updated and is now entitled: How to teach fractions at KS2 for mastery

To view the new course description, please click here

 
      The aims of the course are to look at how we can successfully move learners at Primary level from basic understanding of fractions in their own right to seeing them as a tool that explains division operations. This will be a practical task based day that looks at what has to be taught and learnt from Y1 through to Year 6. Included throughout the sessions will be teacher oriented tasks that will allow for deeper reflection of what fractions are and how they operate with other numbers.

Why should participants attend?

      • To enhance their pupil’s understanding of fractions and their operations in mathematics across the national curriculum at key stages 1 and 2 and also increase their own subject knowledge in this subject

What does the course cover/look at?

      • This course will look at fractions from simple recognition of halves and quarters through to decimal equivalence and operations with other numbers. It will include ideas for tasks in the classroom, exemplary work from years 1 to 6 and importantly building on teacher subject knowledge.

What are the benefits of the course for the participants/ what do they learn what do they gain or come away with?

      • It is envisaged that participants will be aware of statutory and non statutory requirements at each year stage in the subject and will benefit from teacher based tasks that are aimed at reflecting upon what we understand by fractions and how they ‘work’.

Why is the subject important?

      • The subject requires greater depth of understanding now in the national curriculum and conceptual understanding by the children is a key part of their learning.

Course Objectives

    • Looking at progression of understanding and working with fractions from year 1 to year 6
    • Identifying the roles of numerator and denominator
    • Build confidence of the teacher as a maths ‘expert’ in the classroom through  a more in depth understanding of the processes involved
    • Different approaches to the teaching and learning of fractions that are built on other areas of mathematics
    • Reflection of what we as teachers perceive fractions to be and how we might expand on current knowledge

Aimed at

Teachers of KS1 and 2 mathematics, subject coordinators and senior managers preparing for requirements of the 2014 curriculum.
