### Learning outcomes

# Title
1 Pupils identify a whole and the parts that make it up
2 Pupils explain why a part can only be defined when in relation to a whole
3 Pupils identify the number of equal or unequal parts in a whole
4 Pupils identify equal parts when they do not look the same (i)
5 Pupils explain the size of the part in relation to the whole
6 Pupils construct a whole when given a part and the number of parts
7 Pupils identify how many equal parts a whole has been divided into
8 Pupils use fraction notation to describe an equal part of the whole
9 Pupils represent a unit fractions in different ways
10 Pupils identify parts and wholes in different contexts (i)
11 Pupils identify parts and wholes in different contexts (ii)
12 Pupils identify equal parts when they do not look the same (ii)
13 Pupils compare and order unit fractions by looking at the denominator
14 Pupils identify when unit fractions cannot be compared
15 Pupils construct a whole when given one part and the fraction that it represents
16 Pupils use knowledge of the relationship between parts and wholes in unit fractions to solve problems
17 Pupils identify the whole, the number of equal parts and the size of each part as a unit fraction
18 Pupils quantify the number of items in each part and connect to the unit fraction operator
19 Pupils calculate the value of a part by using knowledge of division and division facts
20 Pupils calculate the value of a part by connecting knowledge of division and division facts with finding a fraction of a quantity
21 Pupils find fractions of quantities using knowledge of division facts with increasing fluency
