This term we will be starting the year off by looking at some of the content that we missed in Year 3. We will be looking at fractions, time, properties of shape and mass and capacity. We will be using lots of different representations to help us understand the different concepts. Examples include: fraction walls, cuisenaire rods, 2D and 3D shapes, clocks, bar models and many more. After we have consolidated our fluency skills, we will be attempting some problem solving and reasoning tasks. Take a look at some of the different areas of maths that we will be covering this term:

-Equivalent fractions

-Compare and order fractions

-Add and subtract fractions

-Months and Years

-Hours in a day

-Telling the time to the nearest five minutes and nearest minute

-The 24 hour clock

-Finding and comparing durations

-Measuring time in seconds

-Turns and angles

-Right angles in a shape

-Compare angles

-Horizontal, vertical, parallel and perpendicular lines

-Recognising and describing 2D and 3D shapes

-Measuring and comparing mass

-Add and Subtract mass

-Compare capacity

-Add and Subtract capacity


Every Friday, we will be having an arithmetic lesson. Please take some time to learn times tables, they are so important!

After the topics on fractions, time, shape and mass, we will be starting our place value topic. 

All the children have started the year so well and have shown they are excellent mathematicians!
