If you can't remember how to multiply and divide fractions, watch a video made by the children in year 6 below!
This term we will focus on: place value, perfecting our arithmetic, fractions and in geometry we will learn about position and direction. Lessons will have an emphasis on reasoning and problem solving and children will get weekly mathematics homework. We use a great site in school called Buzzmaths. I have added a link to the bottom of this page to help you find it. Please encourage them to go on and explore whenever they can.
It is vital that children know their timestables in Year 6 and we will be doing lots of practise in class. Please can you also practise at home as this will give them a head start in lessons. There are lots of websites and apps that can help; I have put some on our class home page to get you started.

In school, the children have learnt how to use the 'Mymaths' site and should be able to use the site at home. If you have an ipad, then Mymaths recommend downloading a free app called Penguin Academy, which allows the animations to play. It is a great resource for children to learn and practise any area of maths as often as they like, as well as completing any 'homework' task. Click on the Robot to take you to the Mymaths site. We also use a site called Buzzmaths; you can access it from home here: https://www.buzzmath.com/. You don't need to subscribe there is enough content in the free area to keep you going
