In Early Years this term we have been working with numbers 5-10. Within this we have been investigating different ways of representing this. Using Numicon and concrete objects supports the value of each number. We have been adding and subtracting within 5-10 using several methods. We are becoming more confident with part, part, whole model. Several children have begun to record using number sentences. From our Cornerstones topic of symmetry and butterflies we explored doubling in a practical way.
Year 1 have learnt number bonds to 20 and are exploring the different ways we can represent a number. We have become more confident expressing the place value of a two-digit number within 20 and are beginning to explore subtraction within 20.
In Maths the Year 2 children have been learning about multiplication and division. They have used different resources to help them share into groups of 2, 5 and 10.
The children then started looking at different ways to make 2d shapes and went on a shape hunt around school.
Year 3 have been focused on multiplication and division. The children now know the 3, 4 and 8 times table which we will keep practising throughout the year. We have used the number facts that we know to compare statements and make other related facts.
Year 3 have worked on using different methods including; place value chart, column multiplication, part whole model and base 10 to begin to multiple and divide a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number.
Year 4 have also focused on multiplication and division. The children now know the 3, 4, 6, 7- and 8-times table which they too will keep practising throughout the year. They have looked at different methods to achieve the same goals –using concrete resources to multiply and divide and then we moved on to more formal written methods.
Year 5 have developed their multiplication and division skills, using the formal written methods. They have worked on times tables, using Times Tables Rockstars and have recently moved onto fractions.
Year 6 can identify the value of a number up to 3 decimal places and can multiply and divide decimals by integers. They have spent some time learning how to simplify, convert and order fractions by finding a common denominator. They have learned to use times tables knowledge to support work in percentages and are beginning to find percentages of amounts.
In early years, the children are showing confidence in using Numicon to represent numbers. They have also begun to represent a number in many forms, recognising its value and adding/ subtracting from that number. The younger children in the school have been working on addition and subtraction, increasing their knowledge of number bonds and solving problems related to this. They have also started to look at the relationship between addition and subtraction and are spending more time investigating these operations using number lines and 100 squares.
In Lower Key Stage 2, the children have also worked on addition and subtraction and have applied their knowledge of place value to support their work. The children have used concrete resources and pictures to support addition and subtraction and can use the inverse operations to help problem solve.
Upper Key Stage 2 have worked on written methods for addition and subtraction and found efficient methods to solve problems. Whilst working on their times table knowledge, the children have learned about common factors and factor pairs to support division. They are becoming more confident with multiples and prime numbers and can multiply and divide a number by 2 digits.
This term the children in Early Years have been learning to recognise numbers and Numicon shapes. They are also practising counting objects to find a total. The children in Key Stage 1 have been working on number and place value, where they have grouped objects and can count backwards and forwards. Year 2 children are also starting to learn the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
