This term in Year 6, we will continue working hard on securing our use of formal written methods for the four operations as well as applying a variety of mental strategies to solve problems. We will continue developing our knowledge of negative numbers and decimals in converting units of measurement in distance, time and money. Later on in the term, we will continue working on solving multi-step problems, constructing pie charts and developing our skills in ratio, proportion and algebra! Phew! Again, we are on a desperate mission to know our times tables up to 12 x 12 as it is ESSENTIAL to be able to solve calculations and problems! Any help with this is always appreciated.
Throughout, we will continue to apply our Mathematical skills and understanding to real-life problems and reasoning challenges.
Let us know where you use Maths in your every day life!
