Here is a starter I have used when teaching fractions/fractions of amounts. It involves working out the fraction of the cost of a PS3 various family members will pay towards a present. Could also be used as a plenary.
This worksheet is intended to be a starter activity for a lesson on finding fractions of amounts. If you print the document, '2 pages to a sheet&' and &';print on both sides' (flip on short edge) it becomes a mini booklet. Please leave a comment if you use it and like it :-)
