Happy Children Inspired to Learn

# Maths

AUTUMN TERM 1

Place Value

Roman Numerals - Children explore further the similarities and differences between the Roman number system and our number system, learning that the Roman system does not have a zero and does not use placeholders.

Numbers to 10,000, 100,000 & 1,000,000 - A variety of pictorial and concrete representations are used, including base 10, place value counters, place value charts and part-whole models. In particular, the ability to use place value charts needs to be secure, as this is the main representation used in the coming steps where children learn about 5- and 6-digit numbers.

Addition - Children recap and build on their learning from previous years to mentally calculate sums and differences using partitioning. They use their knowledge of number bonds and place value to add and subtract multiples of powers of 10. Children unitise to help them complete a calculation. For example, if they know that 3 + 5 = 8, then 3 thousand + 5 thousand = 8 thousand and 3,000 + 5,000 = 8,000.

Subtraction - Children revisit the use of the column method for subtraction and learn to apply this method to numbers with more than four digits.children revisit the use of the column method for subtraction and learn to apply this method to numbers with more than four digits.

Multiplication & Division

Multiplication & Division - Children will look to identify multiples and factors, including finding all factor pairs of a number, and common factors of two numbers. Children are able to solve problems involving multiplication and division, including using their knowledge of factors and multiples, squares and cubes
