Year 5 Maths: Summer Term 1
Here is a summary of what we will be learning in Maths in the next 5 weeks after the Easter holiday.
Week 1
·         Mental addition and subtraction
·         Decimals, percentages and their equivalence to fractions
·         Problem solving, reasoning and algebra
Add mentally 2-place decimal numbers in the context of money using rounding; add several small amounts of money using mental methods; mentally subtract amounts of money including giving change; calculate the difference between two amounts using counting up; solve word problems, including 2-step problems, choosing an appropriate method
Week 2
·         Fractions, ratio and proportion
·         Problem solving, reasoning and algebra
·         Written multiplication and division
Multiply fractions less than 1 by whole numbers, convert improper fractions to whole numbers; use short multiplication to multiply 3-digit and 4-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers; use long multiplication to multiply 2-digit and 3-digit numbers by teens numbers
Week 3
·         Decimals, percentages and their equivalence to fractions
·         Problem solving, reasoning and algebra
·         Number and place value
Read, write and compare decimals to three decimal places, understanding that the third decimal place represents thousandths; multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 using 3-place decimal numbers in the calculations; place 2-place decimals on a number line and round them to the nearest tenth and whole number; read, write, order and compare 3-place decimal numbers; understand and use negative numbers in the context of temperature
Week 4
·         Geometry: position and direction
·         Problem solving, reasoning and algebra
·         Geometry: properties of shapes
Read and mark co-ordinates in the first two quadrants; draw simple polygons using co-ordinates; translate simple polygons by adding to and subtracting from the co-ordinates; reflect simple shapes in the y axis or in a line, noting the effect on the co-ordinates; translate simple shapes and note what happens to the co-ordinates; draw regular and irregular 2D shapes using given dimensions and angles; use the properties of 2D shapes, including rectangles, to derive related facts; identify 3D shapes from 2D representations; create 3D shapes using 2D nets and draw 3D shapes
Week 5
·         Written addition and subtraction
·         Problem solving, reasoning and algebra

Add 5-digit numbers using written column addition; subtract 5-digit numbers using written method (decomposition); check answers to subtractions using written column addition; solve subtractions of 4- and 5-digit numbers using written column subtraction or number line counting up
