Maths - Spring
The first few weeks back will be focusing on calculating the area, perimeter and volume of a range of 2D and 3D shapes, including compound rectilinear shapes.
After that, we will be moving on to a larger unit focused upon developing our understanding of decimals. This will include: multiplying and dividing by multiples of 10, 100 and 1000, converting between fractions and decimals and multiplying and dividing with decimals.
In the final weeks of the first half-term, we will then be exploring percentages, in terms of calculating percentages of amounts and understanding the relationships between fractions, decimals and percentages, including ordering them.
Later, in the second part of the spring term, we will be pursuing learning into algebra (including finding and using rules and balancing and solving equations) and measures (including converting between a range of metric and imperial measures).
