Year 5 Fractions, Decimals and Percentages: Groovy Man
This lesson helps children explore the links between simple fractions, decimals and percentages using two powerful concrete resources: Tens Frames and Abacuses. One of the big challenges in the teaching of fractions is providing children with consistent and powerful concrete resources which can then become pictorial representations for the abstract numbers children work with. This lesson is designed to provide children with concrete experiences to underpin their understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages.
Key Stage 2
- Number - fractions (including decimals and percentages)
- identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths
- recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to ‘number of parts per 100’, and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal fraction
