This term, the children will complete their learning about decimals and percentages. They will then move on to 2D and 3D shapes and the reflection or translation of shapes. They will also learn about angles, volume, capacity and units of measurement.
This term in maths we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages. The children will be using their skills that they have learned in multiplication and division in the first 3 weeks of the term.
We will be adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying fractions together.
We are learning all about place value, addition and subtraction, statistics, multiplication and division and perimeter and area. Have a look at this website to support you in your learning:
