During the Spring term, the children will be learning how to solve multiplication and division calculations using the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables. We will also be looking at fractions where children will need to be able to recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity. They will also learn how to write simple fractions, for example 1/2 of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of 1/2 and 2/4.
How can I support my child with Maths?
Please support your child to be able to count fluently in 2's, 5's and 10's. Children also need to remember their numbers bonds of numbers up to 10 and 20 so that they can fluently recall these and use them when solving other calculations. 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.
