Year 6 Fractions worksheets
You need to be able to confidently find equivalent fractions and add, subtract and divide fractions before you try these puzzles.
Can you find fractions and percentages of amounts and compare fractions, decimals and percentages? Then you’re ready to try solving these problems!
You’ll need to find fractions of amounts and add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions in order to solve the problems on this sheet.
If you can multiply fractions you’ll soon be able to divide them by whole numbers, too. Are you ready to have a go at these tricky calculations?
Each pair of adjacent fractions needs to be multiplied to make the one on top.
Each pair of adjacent fractions needs to be added to make the one on top. The fractions all have different denominators, so you will need to use your knowledge of multiples to work out how to add them.
When multiplying a pair of fractions, you simply multiply the two numerators and the two denominators. Try to work these out using the above method. Don’t forget to simplify your answers as the end!
Can you add and subtract fractions? See if you can work out the answers to these calculations...
If we need to compare or order fractions with different denominators, we need to change the denominators so they are the same. Can you use this method to answer these tricky questions?
Help your child visualise which fractions are equivalent to 1, and how fractions are related to each other with an equivalency wall, free to download.
Can you reduce these fractions to their lowest form?
Can you reduce these sets of three fractions to their lowest form, then put them in order from smallest to largest?
Find the fractions which are the same in the simplest form and colour them the same colour.
Now for some fractions addition practice! Choose the correct answer from the four options.
How quickly can you match these fractions to their equivalent in the simplest form?
Can you work out the lowest common denominator for all three fractions, then convert them into fractions with a common denominator?
Cancel these pairs of fractions to their lowest form. Compare them and draw a ring around the largest.
Reduce these sets of three fractions to their lowest form. Which fraction is the odd one out? Draw a ring around it.
Can you add these pairs of fractions? You’ll need to convert them into fractions with the same denominator first!
Use a blank hundred square to explain decimals to KS2 children, as well as showing the equivalence between fractions, decimals and percentages.
