Autumn 1

After a long break over summer it is important that we remember the topics taught in Year 4, esspecially our times tables. This skill is used in a variety of different mathmatical concepts and if fundemental for progress. 


During the Autumn term 1, Year 5 will cover:


  • Place Value
  • Addition and Subtraction


Place value will include reading, writing, comparing, ordering and rounding numbers to 1,000,000. We will be practising the short addition and subtraction methods and looking at the meaning behind an inverse operation. 



Autumn 2

During Autumn 2, Year 5 will cover:


  • Multiplication and Division
  • Fractions


The multiplication and division unit will include finding the multiplies and factors of numbers. We will also look at what are cubed, squared and prime numbers. In our first fractions unit we will understand what equivalent fractions are. This will lead onto comparing, adding and subtracting, improper fractions and mixed numbers.



Spring 1

During Spring 1, Year 5 will cover:


  • Multiplication and Division
  • Fractions


The second multiplication and division unit will include, multiplying a 2 digit number by a 2, 3 and 4 digit number. They will also be using the short division method to divide a 4 digit number by a 1 digit number. In our second fractions unit they will be multiplying unit and non-unit fractions by an integer and mixed numbers. This will lead to finding the whole and a fractions of an amount. 



Spring 2

During Spring 2, Year 5 will cover:


  • Decimals and Percentages 
  • Perimeter and Area

The decimal and percentages unit will include the following; finding equivalent fractions and decimals, converting between percentages, fractions and decimals, ordering fractions, decimals and percentages and lasty rounding. 

The perimeter and area unit will include; calculating perimeter of regular and compound rectangles and polygons. This will lead onto finding the area of regular and compound shapes.  



Summer 1

During Summer 1, Year 5 will cover:

  • Stastics
  • Shape
  • Position and Direction


The stastics will include; reading, drawing an interpreting different graphs. This involves, line graphs, pie charts, bar graphs and reading bus timetables. 

In the shape unit it will include;  drawing, estimating and measuring different angles. Understanding the difference between acute, straight line, obtuse and reflex angles will help to order them together.

In the position and direction unit it will include; plotting coordinates, translating shapes, working with lines of symetry and lines of reflection. 



Place value and times table knowledge underpin all mathematical knowledge. Please do access all of the resources listed to support your child with these fundamental aspects of mathematics. A variety of different learning styles have been catered for in this collection of links.
