In maths lessons across school we have been continuing to follow the White Rose Maths Schemes of Learning available for you to see here: https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/primary-resources/primary-sols/
These Schemes of Learning help you to see the progress children are expected to make as they learn key skills in different units of learning. The schemes also show you where key skills are repeated from previous years to help cover gaps in learning which will have occurred during their disrupted education since March 23rd 2020.
There is also a really useful section on the web site which contains guidance for parents:
Y6 are working through their unit on angles. They have revised types of angles and learnt how to use a protractor to measure angles (a key skill missed during lockdown in Y5). They have also worked through finding missing angles on a straight line and missing angles around a point. Next week they are moving on to learn about angles in a triangle and quadrilateral.
Y5 are working on angles, this week they have been identifying different types of angles – acute, obtuse, right angles and a straight line. Pupils have practised measuring angles and are beginning to draw angles.
Y4 are working to improve their knowledge and understanding of time and learning how to work through reasoning and problem solving questions.
Y3 have been learning about time as well as Y4, they have been learning to read to the nearest 5 minutes, about am and pm, measuring time in seconds and how time is read using a 24 hour clock.
Y2 have been learning about position and direction in geometry. They have been describing the position of places and objects on a grid using the words: left, right, above, below, in between, forwards and backwards. They have also learnt to correctly use the mathematical language for turns, describing turns using the language ‘full turn’, ‘half turn’, ‘quarter turn’, ‘three-quarter turn’, ‘clockwise’ and ‘anticlockwise’.
Y1 have been working on multiplication and division – here are some of the types of questions they have been working on
