  • What a great resource! However, on the middle ability answer sheet there is an error -it should be 3/5 and not 4/5 for Q4.

    • Good afternoon Rachael03,
      I'm glad this resource is useful! Thanks for letting us know :) Having a look at this resource each pair of blocks total the block above them. The bottom row on the middle ability sheet question 4 add up to 1, as does the second row. Could you please tell me a bit more about how there seems to be a mistake? Thanks again for getting in touch.

  • This resource was great for Y4 - Adding fractions with like denominators (and extending HA to apply understanding of equivalent fractions).
    I noticed in the comments below that an editable version has been made.  Could this be made available for download please?  Thanks

  • On the 3 star sheet answer sheet the bottom left top shows 31/10 but the answer should be 41/10.  Just a heads up!

    • Hello again spooky,
      My apologies, you are correct the higher ability version doesn't have different denominators. I have asked our lovely teacher team if it is possible to create a version with different denominators to really challenge the children! Thank you for the suggestion and we will be back in touch soon :)
