Autumn 1 Maths:
Maths at Woodbridge Junior School follows the Maths No Problem Textbooks. This term we are focusing on developing our understanding of place value; specifically looking at numbers to a million. In the first unit of Year 6, we will consolidate prior knowledge of place value, working with numbers between 100,000 to 1, 000, 000. We will be using concrete materials such as base ten and place value charts to help represent numbers. As we progress through the chapter we will develop our knowledge of place value, working with numbers between 1, 00, 000 and 10, 000, 000 using number discs, numerals and words. We will then be learning how to round and compare numbers to 10, 000, 000 followed by placing them in order from smallest to greatest. There will be plenty of opportunities to apply these skills in Greater Depth Challenges and problem-solving activities.
