Year 5 | Adding and Subtracting Fractions Worksheets

These Year 5 worksheets on adding and subtracting fractions instruct your class to combine fractions through addition. They are encouraged to use a separate sheet of paper to assist in working out the answers. Similarly, children repeat this task by subtracting fractions from each other. Following these exercises, they must find the solution to a number sentence problem involving both addition and subtraction of fractions.

This Year 5 adding and subtracting fractions worksheet is designed to aid your class in identifying and practising the processes of adding and subtracting fractions, contributing to the ongoing growth of their confidence in handling fractions. Adding and subtracting fractions require children to think critically about the relationship between different parts and the whole, fostering logical reasoning and problem-solving skills.

All of our Year 5 fractions worksheets can be combined with your ideas for primary maths activities, learning resources, teaching material, visual aids, games, differentiation, display boards, homework, and lesson plans.
