Spring Term 2023
To start this half term, we will move on to Time. After some revision, we will look at the 24 hour clock before solving problems coverting seconds, minutes and hours. We will then solve further problems using timetables.
We then move swiftly on to Decimals understanding tenths, hundredths. We then move on to comparing and ordering decimals and looking at the relationships with fractions. The unit is completed by rounding decimals.
We will also be working extra hard to develop our rapid recall of all times tables up to and including 12x. This is in readiness for the national Multiplication Check in June.
This half term we will move onto Graphs. In this chapter, pupils will learn how to interpret picture graphs and bar graphs. They will be introduced to line graphs and how they are used to measure change over time. They will interpret line graphs and use information collated in a table to draw a line graph. Pupils will make predictions based on trends identified in data.
Towards the end of the half term we will begin looking at fractions. In this chapter pupils will be introduced to hundredths. They will learn about mixed number fractions and improper fractions. They will learn how to convert between mixed numbers and improper fractions. They will learn how to add and subtract fractions and will solve addition and subtraction word problems.
