Maths Subject Overview
This was part of our multiplication and division unit of work. As part of multiplication, the children spent time learning how to multiply 1 and 2 digit number by 3 digit numbers using a formal written method. In the division section, the children have learnt how to use a written method to divide 3 digits by 1 digit. In this work, the children were given mistakes that had been made. They had to use their reasoning skills to explain what mistakes had been made and what the correct method should have been.
Year 5 have also been learning about percentages, decimals and fractions. Here the children have been learning how to convert fractions into decimals and vice versa and using a written method to add decimal numbers more than one.
