Maths

We will begin the year looking at Place Value and what makes up numbers with 6 or more digits and how to use our knowledge of rounding within these numbers. Before moving onto adding and subtracting using the column methods. In this half term, we will also begin to look at square and cubed numbers.

Each morning, children will revisit prior learning through Early Bird Maths questions or tasks.

It is important that the children maintain their fluency in times tables, so should continue to practice regularly using TTRs and other times table games.
