Spring Term 2023
This half term we will continue to consolidate all of our learning so far this year during our 10 in 10 practice. During our lessons, we will be learning all about decimals. We will be understanding the value of tenths, hundreths and thousandths and compare and ordering decimals to understand the value of these digits. We will then move on to adding and subtracting decimals up to three decimal places. During this unit, we will also cover the fraction equivalence to decimal numbers. We will then move on to learning about percentages. We will be understanding what a percentage is, comparing different quantities and finding percentages of amounts. Again, we will learn about decimal and fraction equivalences to percentage values. Later in the half term, we will begin our geometry unit. In this, we will be learning all about different types of angles, how to measure angles using a protractor and investigating angles in shapes and on a line.
This half term we will continue to consolidate our learning of multiplication and division through out 10 in 10 practise. In our main lessons, we will begin to learn about fractions. This this unit, we will learn about equivalent fractions and how to simplify before moving on to adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators. We then learn how to multiply fractions by whole numbers. We will use lots of concrete resources and pictorial representations to support the children's understanding.
