Weekly overviews

Week 1 (3.9.18)

Y4 - I recognise the place value of each digit in a 4-digit number. I can order and compare numbers beyond 1,000.

Y5 - I can read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1,000,000. I can determine the value of each digit in numbers up to 1,000,000.

Week 2 (10.9.18)

Y4 - I can read Roman numerals to 100 and know that over time the numeral system changed to include the concept of zero and place value.

Y5 - I can read Roman numerals to 1,000 (M) and recognise years written in Roman numerals.

Week 3 (17.9.18)

Y4 - I can count in multiples of 1000 and find 1000 more or less than a given number; count in 25s from any given number and count backwards through zero to include negative numbers.

Y5 - I can count in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to a million; interpret negative numbers in context.

Week 4 (24.9.18)

Y5 โ€“ round any number up to 1,000,000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000 and 100000.
