Year 4 – Adding Fractions

Today Y4 have been extending their learning about fractions by learning how to add them. We have looked at different ways of trying to show this visually, and then on a number line to help.

The photo shows the use of Numicon to add fractions of the same denominator, using a fraction wall to add fractions together, and using a number line.

We learned some new vocabulary: ‘improper fraction’ and ‘mixed number’ for when fractions are greater than one whole.
