### 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 |
