Number - fractions (including decimals and percentages)

Rather than link the same link multiple times, I will share it only once.

On this page of my super-duper whizzy website, there are many different aspects that might be helpful for supporting Year 5 pupils to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world of fractions, decimals and percentages.

Compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number

Identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths

Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number [for example, 2/5 + 4/5 = 6/5 = 1 1/5)

Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, and denominators that are multiples of the same number

Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams

Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = 71/100]

Recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents

Round decimals with 2 decimal places to the nearest whole number and to 1 decimal place

Read, write, order and compare numbers with up to 3 decimal places

Solve problems involving number up to 3 decimal places

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

Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of ½, ¼, 1/5, 2/5, 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25
