Maths

In Maths this term, our main focus is on place value, numbers up to 2 decimal places, addition and subtraction. 

In year 5, children need to be able to give reasons for their calculations and answers to show they have a deeper understanding- this is something we will continue to work on this term. It is also so important for children to know their times tables. We will practise this in school but anything you can do to help them learn these regularly at home will be so beneficial to them. 

I have attached some useful websites below and fun games to help children learn their times tables. I cannot emphasise enough how vital it is for your child to learn their times tables in order for them to be able to access all areas of the year 5 curriculum. Any extra support you can give your child at home with times tables will have such a positive impact on their learning.
