Maths

In Year 5, we have daily numeracy and arithmetic lessons.  Using our new Small Steps approach (http://www.mathshubs.org.uk/) every child has the chance to become masters at maths.  Every lesson provides an opportunity to develop a skill through fluency, reasoning and problem solving.  Additionally, children frequently set themselves high expectations by completing extra challenges.

 

Although in Year 5 it is expected that all children know their times tables, it is still important to practise them regularly.   A particularly useful resource is Top Marks (https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables) and many games are tablet compatible.

 

Listed below are some of the topics covered in numeracy:

  • All four operations, including multi-step problem solving;
  • Fractions, decimals and percentages;
  • Statistics - reading, interpreting and drawing line graphs; reading and interpreting timetables;
  • Perimeter and area;
  • Geometry - 3D shapes and angles;
  • Measurements - volume and mass.
