Autumn 2

Maths Autumn 2

In Maths, we will be spending spending the first two weeks back working on 'The Four Operations', including square, cube and prime numbers, the order of operations (BIDMAS) and factors and multiples. 


Moving on to a four week unit on 'Fractions' which will make up the majority of this half-term's Maths, we will be simplifying, comparing and ordering fractions, as well as calculating with fractions (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).


Finally, we will be exploring 'Geometry' through co-ordinate activities involving all four quadrants and drawing, translating and reflecting simple shapes.


Throughout our maths learning this year, we will continue our emphasis on solving number and practical problems, including both single and multi-step word problems amongst other reasoning problems, as well as further strengthening our underpinning arithmetic skills.
