In maths we will be working on place value, reading, writing, ordering and comparing numbers up to 10,000,000. We will learn to round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy. To calculate negative numbers and use these in context. We will also work on calculation involving all 4 operations and on solving multi-step problems. Our work on Fractions will involve ordering, comparing, adding, subracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. We will also consider line graphs, both interpretation of them and drawing graphs.
How you can help…
- Practise times tables to increase fluency: children who are not fluent with their times tables will struggle with the pace of calculation in year 6 and will find reasoning problems difficult as most of their focus will be on the calculation proceedures.
- Practise the four operations: adding, subtraction, multiplication and division with your children.
