This lesson plan for lower KS2 introduces the concept of working out fractions of amounts, so might be a good primer if you teach younger children.

Crystal Crash works along the familiar lines of games like Tetris, Columns or Candy Crush (only without trying to charge you to keep playing), as you try to clear the crystals.
To do so, pupils need to answer fractions of numbers questions, and the vast array of difficulty settings makes it great for all pupils to try.

This activity requires students to calculate a fraction of an amount, where the numerator is always ‘1’, to find and decipher an encrypted clue to reveal where the treasure is hidden!
These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. The large cards can be pinned around around the classroom and used for a whole-class activity; the smaller (loop cards) can be used for group work or by individuals.

Make learning about fractions fun and engaging by using QR codes. This PDF features a 24-question scavenger hunt linked to fractions of amounts using QR codes. It’s great for revision of fractions of amounts in Year 4 and 5.
The ‘code’ has the fractions of amounts question so the student can scan the code, record the question (eg 6/7 of 42g) and answer to the question, and look for that answer.
Once they have the card with that answer they then scan that ‘code’ and continue with the same steps until they find all of the answers.
Give it a go here.
This set allows students to practise working out fractions of quantities when the numerator of the fraction is ‘1’.
Note that the questions have been carefully selected so that they provide good coverage of this topic and so that the opportunities for students to guess answers are minimised.
In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order.
Cut out card size is approx 65 x 90 mm.
Everything you need for every subject across Key Stages 3 and 4.
