Throughout the year, we will be working hard and undertaking lots of tricky challenges and learning new concepts. We shall be developing our written methods, mental calculations and reasoning skills involving the four mathematical operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
An instant recall of key mathematics facts helps children to solve problems mentally and with greater speed.
We shall start the year by learning the number bonds to 10. Being able to rapidly recall these facts will help when working with bigger numbers later.
Once this has been mastered, we shall focus on number bonds to 20, halves and doubles, counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s and times tables.
It would be great if you could help your child practise these important key facts at home too!
Each week the children shall undertake an arithmetic 'quiz' to help develop speed, accuracy and stamina.
