 Maths

 

The principal focus of Mathematics teaching in upper key stage 2 is to ensure that your child extends their understanding of the number system and place value to include larger numbers. This should develop the connections that they make between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio.

At this stage, they should develop their ability to solve a wider range of problems, including increasingly complex properties of numbers and arithmetic, and problems demanding efficient written and mental methods of calculation. With this foundation in arithmetic, they are introduced to the language of algebra as a means of solving a variety of problems. Teaching in geometry and measures should consolidate and extend knowledge developed in number. Teaching should also ensure that your child can classify shapes with increasingly complex geometric properties and that they learn the vocabulary they need to describe them.

By the end of year 6, children should be fluent in written methods for all four operations, including long multiplication and division, and in working with fractions, decimals and percentages.

Your child should read, spell and pronounce mathematical vocabulary correctly.
