Happy Children Inspired to Learn

# Summer Term 2023

Summer 2

This half term we will continue to consolidate our work on number and fractions, decimals and percentages through 10 in 10 practice. This is to ensure the children feel confident using all of the methods we have learned in Year 5 to answer a variety of multiplication, division, addition and subtraction questions as well as fraction, decimal and percentage problems.

During our daily Maths lessons, the children will be learning all about area, perimeter and volume of shapes. The children will complete their daily workbook activities and then apply their learning to solve greater depth problems. We will then be recapping long division to ensure the children are confident with this method before moving on to Year 6.

Summer 1

This half term we will continue to consolidate our work on number through 10 in 10 practice. This is to ensure the children feel confident using all of the methods we have learned in Year 5 to answer a variety of multiplication, division, addition and subtraction questions as well as fraction, decimal and percentage problems. We will also be introducing a resource called Cuisenaire Rods. This resource will really help to consolidate learning in the next half term.

During our daily Maths lessons, the children will be continuing to develop their understanding of geometry and angles. We will be learning how to solve angles of a straight line and angles around a point. We will then move on to learn all about Position and Movement. Within this unit, the children will learn about plotting points on a grid as well as translation and reflection of points and shapes within this grid. We will then move on to learning about Measurements. The children will learn how to convert units of measurement and applying this knowledge to solve problems. We will also be converting units of time and understanding and applying negative numbers within units of temperature.
