Autumn 2 units:




We also have daily Big Maths sessions which focus on basic number and calculation skills.

On Friday we complete an arithmetic skills test (Rising Stars or Testbase).

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.

Y4 - round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1,000.

Week 5 (1.10.18)

Initially both cohorts will continue rounding numbers. We will then be solving number problems and practical problems that involve all of the mathematical coverage so far.

Week 6 (8.10.18)

Y5 โ€“ add whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods.

Y4 - add numbers with up to 4-digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition.

Week 7 (15.10.18)
Y5 โ€“ subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods.

Y4 - subtract numbers with up to 4-digits using the formal written methods of columnar subtraction.

We will also be recalling x and รท facts for the 9 times table. Remember the fingers trick!


Week 1 (29.10.18)

Both cohorts will be looking at different methods to complete subtraction calculations and problems. Methods will include bar modelling, adjusting by 1 and counting up to find the difference.

Week 2 (5.11.18)

Both cohorts will be checking +/- answers by using the inverse operation. Solving addition and subtraction number puzzles and word problems too.

Week 3 (12.11.18)


Week 4 (19.11.18)


Week 5 (26.11.18)
