Weekly Maths. Summer 2. Week 1-7
We will be conducting a maths investigation about designing and running our own Theme Park. This will include revision of many of the maths curriculum areas such as place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and also working with decimals and area.
We will also revise other key areas such as calculating area, converting measures etc and apply our knowledge to a range of problems.
Weekly Maths. Summer 1. Week 5
We multiplied decimal numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 . Some of us showed that they had "mastered" this by solving problems and spotting and explaining errors in calculations.
Weekly Maths. Summer 1. Week 4
We focused on decimal numbers and converting to fractions and then from fractions to decimals. We also added decimal numbers using column addition.
Weekly Maths. Summer 1. Week 3
This week we started working with decimal numbers. We reminded ourselves about the value of digits which come after the decimal point. We also ordered decimal numbers and solved simple problems involving decimal numbers.
Weekly Maths. Summer 1. Week 2
We will focus on fractions again this week and make sure we are confident with what we have learned so far as well as beginning to multiply fractions.
Weekly Maths. Summer 1. Week 1.
We will be moving on to working out various percentages of numbers and then amounts.
We will also be continuing our work on fractions by counting in fractions and re-visiting fractions of amounts, adding and subtracting fractions and calculating equivalent fractions.
Weekly Maths. Spring 2. Week 5.
We will continue to work with improper and mixed fractions and also move on to adding fractions.
Weekly Maths. Spring 2. Week 4.
This week we will be completing frequency tables and interpreting data from tables. This will be linked to our rainforest topic. We will also work on mixed and improper fractions.
Weekly Maths. Spring 2. Week 3.
This week we will continue to work on converting between different metric units. Building on the knowledge gained over the previous weeks and applying this to contextual word problems. We will continue to work with fractions and calculate lowest common denominators.
Weekly Maths. lowSpring 2. Week 2.
This week we will continue to work with fractions and compare and order them.We will calculate equivalent fractions and look at improper fractions too.
We will continue with metric conversion this week. Moving on to converting between g/kg and ml/l.
Weekly Maths. Spring 2. Week 1.
This week we will begin to work on fractions and will focus on comparing and ordering fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number.For example:
2/4= 1/2, 3/8 = 6/16, 2/5< 5/10. We also found fractions of amounts.
We also started to look at converting between different metric units of measure, including mm to cm to m to km. Linking this in with work done last term on multiplying and dividing by 10/100/1000.
Weekly Maths. Spring 1
This week we applied our knowledge of time to real life problems as well as looking at interpreting data form tables and using the inverse to solve problems.
Weekly Maths. Spring 1
We converted units of time (eg. seconds to minutes, minutes to hours etc) and also reminded ourselves about number of days in each month and in a year.
We used our knowledge of multiplying and dividing numbers by 10/100/1000 and applied this to contextual problems.
Weekly Maths. Spring 1
We continued to measure and calculate both perimeter and area of compound shapes and we also challenged ourselves by working out problems where certain measurements of the shapes were missing.
We looked at how when multiplying and dividing by 10/100/1000, the numbers do not change, they slide left or right. The decimal point does not move.
Weekly Maths. Spring 1. Week 3
This week we continued to measure and calculate perimeter and also calculated the area of compound shapes.
We started to look at multiplying and dividing numbers by 10/100/1000 and how this relates back to work done on place value in the first half term.
Weekly Maths. Spring 1. Week 2
This week we have reminded ourselves about the concept of perimeters and spent time carefully measuring rectilinear shapes (shapes where angles are 90/ 270 degrees). We have applied our knowledge of rounding to measuring too. Our work on the formal methods of division has continued and the children have realised how important times tables are to division as well as multiplication!
Weekly Maths. Spring 1. Week 1
This week we went back in time to the Stone Age and spent a couple of lessons discussing the terms BC and AD and creating timelines which stretched back to the prehistoric age! We also linked this work to our understanding of negative numbers. We also began the formal method of division which we will continue next week.
Weekly Maths. Autumn 2. Week 6
This week we will use known multipliaction facts to find the answer to division problems as well as divide numbers up to 4 digits by a one digit number using the formal written method.
Weekly Maths Autumn 2. Week 5
In maths this week, we will look at using co-ordinates in both reflection and translation of shapes, on a grid. We will also identify factors of individual and pairs of numbers and multiply and divide whole numbers and decimal numbers by 10, 100 and 1000.
Weekly Maths Autumn 2. Week 4
In maths this week, we will look at reflection of shapes using a mirror line. We will also discuss and identify prime numbers as well as practise, use and apply short and long multiplication to solve problems.
Weekly Maths Autumn 2. Week 3
In maths this week, we will continue to visualise 3D shapes from 2D nets. We will also distinguish between regular and irregular polygons. We will also continue to practise short multiplication and some pupils will use long multiplication too.
Weekly Maths Autumn 2. Week 2
In maths this week, we will continue describing 3D shapes, along with making various 3D shapes from nets.
We will also practice using the short metod of multiplication to calculate 2,3, 4 and 5 digit numbers by a 1 digit number eg: 456
Weekly Maths Autumn 2. Week 1
Our Maths this week will link to our School Art week and we will develop our understanding of 3D shape by linking this with art activities. We will also looked closely at the properties of 3D shapes in Maths lessons.
