In mathematics this half term we will be covering the following topics:
- Position and direction including co-ordinates
- Area and perimeter
We will also revisit the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and working on our mental maths skills.
How can you help at home
If you child does not know their times tables and cannot recall facts quickly please help them to learn these and/or improve the speed at which they recall facts. Most of the work we do in maths in year 6 requires knowledge and recall of multiplication facts.
Encourage and support your child to complete the homework set each week.
Maintain a positive attitude towards mathematics even if it was not your favourite subject at school.
