  • Use the highly effective ‘Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract’ approaches including the ‘bar model’ and Cuisenaire rods to teach problem solving and calculating involving fractions
  • Connect fractions to multiplication, division and measures
  • Plan using Karen’s innovative tools: the ‘Maths Sandwich’ and  ‘Medium-Term Planning Map’ to create true ‘Mastery’ in fractions
  • Teach for variation ensuring fractions are applied across the whole maths curriculum to embed understanding and skills
