Key Stage 2 Fractions, Decimals and Percentages Maths Autumn Term Year 3

Finding fractions of amounts, as well as recognising and writing unit fractions and non-unit fractions, are the focus of these ready-to-teach Year 3 fractions lesson plans, slides, worksheets and differentiated resources.

 
#TheCompleteSeries5lessons

In this five-lesson scheme of work for Year 3, your children will learn all about recognising, finding, writing and comparing fractions. They begin by identifying, recording and counting in tenths, before moving on to finding unit fractions of quantities, recognising simple equivalences, and learning how to compare and order fractions. Finally, children will apply all of their knowledge and understanding of fractions by solving a variety of fractions problems.

#Lesson1CountinginTenths

What are tenths? Find and recognise tenths of a whole number, practise counting in tenths and write and represent tenths with this ready to teach Year 3 fractions lesson plan pack, differentiated activities and resources.

What is a fraction? This, the first of five 'Finding Fractions' lessons, begins with a brief recap to help you determine your pupils' current knowledge and understanding of basic fractions, before moving on to focus specifically on tenths. In this lesson, children will learn how to write and represent tenths in pictorial form, as well as practising counting on and back in tenths. In their independent activities, children will identify and record tenths in a variety of different ways. Or if you fancy something different, in the alternative activity children can practise their recognising tenths in different forms by playing Tenths Dominoes using the included printable PDF resources.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Tenths Dominoes Cards
  • Instructions Cards
#Lesson2FractionsofShapesandFractionsofaSet

Find fractions of shapes and fractions of a set with this ready to teach Year 3 Maths lesson plan pack, slides, fractions worksheets and printable PDF resources.

At the start of this lesson (using the included slides), your class will be reminded of what each number in a fraction represents. They will then look again at how to identify and write a fraction of a set or shape. After that, your pupils will move on to learning how to find a fraction of a set or shape where the total amount of objects or parts is a multiple of the denominator. In their independent activities, children will apply this knowledge and understanding to find fractions of various quantities.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Colour Me In! Challenge Cards
#Lesson3EquivalentFractions

Teach your class how to find equivalent fractions with this Year 3 lesson plan pack, including equivalent fractions worksheets, slides, a fraction wall and a range of other resources for teaching equivalent fractions.

In this lesson, children begin to learn about equivalent fractions. They use fraction walls to understand and recognise different equivalent fractions. In their independent activities, children identify and match up a range of different equivalent fractions using a fraction wall. Alternatively, children can play a game of Snap! which will help them to get better at finding equivalent fractions in both numerical and pictorial form.

This is the third of five complete 'Finding Fractions' lesson plan packs for Year 3, which includes a whole week's worth of Year 3 fractions Maths lesson planning, ready to teach!

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Fraction Walls Sheet
  • Snap! Cards
  • Snap! Instructions
#Lesson4ComparingandOrderingFractions

Comparing and Ordering Fractions is a complete Year 3 lesson plan pack with everything needed to teach children about ordering fractions from least to greatest and comparing fractions. Includes worksheets and activities.

In this, the penultimate lesson of five in the week-long 'Finding Fractions' scheme of work, children learn how to compare two fractions using the fraction wall, by stating whether one is smaller than or bigger than the other, or whether they are equal in value. They then progress to using this knowledge to order different sets of fractions. Children continue to practise comparing and ordering fractions in their independent work. Alternatively, as a whole class activity, they are each given a unique fraction card which they compare with other children’s cards.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Differentiated worksheets
  • Fraction Walls Sheet
  • Fraction Cards
  • Pair and Compare Sheet
#Lesson5FractionProblems

Teach your Year 3 class to read, understand and solve fraction word problems by applying what they learn about fractions (during the included slideshow). The lesson also includes fraction problems worksheets with answers.

In this, the final lesson of five, children first identify and then solve a variety of different problems using their knowledge and understanding of equivalent fractions, comparing and ordering fractions, and finding fractions of amounts. Children also learn how to find non-unit fractions of amounts.

 

What's included:

  • Lesson plan
  • Slides
  • Activity ideas
  • Sorting Sheet
  • Solving Problems Worksheet
  • Problem Cards
  • Fractions in Action Game Board
  • Fractions In Action Game Cards

Curriculum Objectives covered
  • Year 3 - count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10
  • Year 3 - recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators
  • Year 3 - recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators
  • Year 3 - compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators
  • Year 3 - solve problems that involve all of the above
