During the Summer term, the children will be learning about measurement. Children will be learning how to measure and compare length, mass and volume as well as learning how to measure temperature using a thermometer. Children will also learn how to tell the time to five minutes and be able to draw these times on a clock face.
In our work on geometry, children will be able to recognise and describe 2D and 3D shapes. Children will be able to count the sides and vertices on 2D shapes and count the faces, edges and vertices on 3D shapes. They will also learn about lines of symmetry and be able to use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement.
How can I support my child with Maths?
Telling the time is something that children often find quite tricky. You can support your child by using an analogue clock at home and regularly modelling how to tell the time with your child throughout the day.
Please continue to support your child in solving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division arithmetic calculations.
For addition and subtraction, you can do this by practising the column addition and subtraction method.
For multiplication and division, you can support your child to be able to count fluently in 2s, 5s and 10s and solve multiplication and division number sentences using these times table facts.
Every child has a username and password for Numbots. This is an excellent resource designed to improve maths fluency. Children should aim to access Numbots at least 3 times a week at home.
