  2. Addition and Subtraction - continuing to revise understanding and use of Place Value and number facts in mental addition and subtraction.
     
  3. Multiplication and Division - focusing on key multiplication and division facts and doubling and halving.
     
  4. Time & 3D Shapes - Look at telling the time with increasing accuracy and identifying, describing and sorting 3D shapes.
     
  5. Place Value & Difference - focus on placing 2- and 3-digit numbers on a line and using an empty number line to find differences.

Autumn Term 2

 

Topics we are covering this half term are:

 

  1. Multiplication and Division; Fractions - focuses on doubling and halving, and understanding a half and other unit fractions.
     
  2. Place Value in Addition and Subtraction - focuses on understanding place value, including in money and on using partitioning in adding and subtracting.
     
  3. Length; Capacity - focuses on SI units and measurement of length and capacity.
     
  4. Place Value; Difference - focuses on using number lines to compare and round numbers to find differences.
     
  5. Revision - provides revision of key strategies and their use in word problems.

Spring Term 1

 

Topics we are covering this half term are:

 

  1. Place Value - focuses on embedding a thorough understanding of place value and properties of numbers.
     
  2. Addition; Times Tables - focuses on using partitioning in addition; and on the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables.
     
  3. Fractions - focuses on fractions as numbers, finding equivalent fractions, placing fractions on a line, and on fractions as operators, finding fractions of amounts.
     
  4. Angles; 2D Shapes - focuses on angles, including right angles, measurement of turn and the ° symbol; and on properties of 2D shapes and finding perimeters.
     
  5. Addition and Subtraction - focuses on the way a secure understanding of place value underpins rounding, mental addition and subtraction, and column methods of addition.

Spring Term 2

 

Topics we are covering this half term are:

 

  1. Addition and Subtraction - focuses on the way a secure understanding of place value underpins rounding, mental addition and subtraction, and column methods of addition.
     
  2. Addition and Subtraction - focuses on the way a secure understanding of place value underpins rounding, mental addition and subtraction, and column methods of addition.
     
  3. Time - focuses on time-telling on digital and analogue clocks, and the calculation of time intervals; these are used in solving word problems.
     
  4. Place Value; Subtraction - focuses on using number lines to facilitate an understanding of place value in 3-digit numbers, and as an efficient method of performing subtraction involving 3-digit numbers.
     
  5. Multiplication and Division - focuses on developing multiplication strategies using doubling and halving and the grid method; division is related to multiplication and this relationship is used to solve missing number problems.

Topics we are covering this half term are:

 

  1. Addition and Subtraction - focuses on securing understanding of addition and subtraction and rehearsing sound mental strategies, extending to adding and subtracting fractions.
     
  2. Multiplication and Division - focuses on developing understanding and skills in multiplication and division, including using tables facts to solve scaling problems, multiplications using the grid method, and divisions using chunking.
     
  3. Multiplication and Division - focuses on developing understanding and skills in multiplication and division, including using tables facts to solve scaling problems, multiplications using the grid method, and divisions using chunking.
     
  4. Statistics and Data; Weight - focuses on drawing and interpreting pictograms and bar graphs with different scales, and on using these to record and analyse data in the context of measuring weights.
     
  5. Addition and Subtraction - focuses on mental and written addition and subtraction, including mental strategies, column addition, subtracting by counting up, and choosing appropriate methods to solve problems.

Summer Term 2

 

Topics we are covering this half term are:

 

  1. Addition and Subtraction - focuses on mental and written addition and subtraction, including mental strategies, column addition, subtracting by counting up, and choosing appropriate methods to solve problems.
