Mathematics

This term we will cover a wide range of different mathematical topics. These will include place value to hundreds of thousands and down to thousandths. We will also look at column addition and subtraction including decimals and money. Calculations including multiplication and division will be practiced. Along with relating fractions to decimals.

We will also look at measures including time and shapes including 3d shapes.

To help with the new written arithmetic paper we will have weekly arithmetic lessons focused on basic calculations. Times tables will also be tested in the summer so times tables will be practiced weekly or more often.
