During the summer term we will continue to work on our mental maths skills, particularly our times tables and mental addition and subtraction, finding the most efficient methods.
• We will revisit column addition and subtraction, together with the formal written layout used for multiplying two and three digit numbers by a one-digit number. We will practice solving two-step problems, deciding which operations should be used and why.
• We will describe positions on a 2D grid as coordinates and describe movements between positions as translations. We will plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon.
• We will identify acute and obtuse angles and identify lines of symmetry in 2D shapes.
• In fractions we will count up and down in hundredths and tenths. We will learn to recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object by one hundred and that tenths arise when dividing an object by ten. We will learn to recognise and write decimal equivalents to ¼, ½ and ¾.
• We will cover time and money and other measurements, learning to convert between hours and minutes and kilometres and centimetres.
