Mathematics in Year 5
For the first few weeks of Autumn 1, we will be perfecting our place value. This will include our knowledge of numbers up to 1,000,000 and problems including these numbers. Lessons will have more of an emphasis placed on the children's reasoning and problem solving, with a focus placed on the children's explanations of how they have got to an answer.
Children will have weekly Maths homework to allow them to practise and consolidate their understanding of each topic at home. Times tables are also a focus in Class 5, and we will be doing lots of practise of these in class. Please could you practise these at home too to give them a head start in lessons.
