Year 5 ordering fractions

Fractions always seem to cause problems for children who are less confident with their maths, often because they do not get enough practice with ordering and comparing fractions. This worksheet compares sixths and thirds by placing them in order on a number line as well as asking whether statements are true or false. A good understanding of equivalent fractions is needed to do this and many children will still need practice at counting forwards and backwards in fractions (eg count on from zero in sixths up to 2 whole ones.)
