We will be covering a lot in maths this term!
We will have a strong number, place value and arithmetic focus to ease the children into the year. In addition, we will look at fractions and money.
We will improve our reasoning skills and look at how to explain our logic behind an answer, explaining not whether a question is right or wrong but to explain why it is right or wrong.
To ease some concerns from parents regarding test anxieties, as often as possible the children will answer test style questions in an informal lesson setting to understand how to apply their knowledge to this type of question. This will hopefully ease their anxieties and help them to understand what some questions expect of them.
Each day we will practice our times tables through a variety of activities.
