Maths

During this term we will focus on the following aspects of mathematics:

Number: Place value

  • Reading, writing, ordering and comparing numbers up to 10 000 000 and determining the value of each digit.
  • Rounding any whole number to a required degree of accuracy.
  • Using negative numbers in context, and calculating intervals across zero.
  • Solving number and practical problems that involve all of the above.

Number: Addion, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

  • Solving addition and subtraction multi step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.
  • Multiplying multi-digit number up to 4 digits by a 2 digit number using the formal written method of long multiplication.
  • Dividing numbers up to 4 digits by a 2 digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions or by rounding as appropriate for the context.
  • Dividing numbers up to 4 digits by a 2 digit number using the formal written method of short division, interpreting remainders according to context.
  • Performing mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers.
  • Identifying common factors, common multiples and prime numbers.
  • Using their knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the four operations.
  • Solving problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Fractions

  • Using common factors to simplify fractions; using common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination.
  • Comparing and ordering fractions, including fractions > 1
  • Generating and describing linear number sequences (with fractions)
  • Adding and subtracting fractions with different denominations and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions.
  • Multiplying simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form.]
  • Dividing proper fractions by whole numbers.
  • Associating a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents.
  • Recalling and using equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts.

Geometry: Position and Direction

  • Describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants).
  • Draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes.
