We will start this term with a quick recap on equivalent fractions before looking at how we tackle adding and subtracting fractions. We'll move on to applying this to problem solving and use some real life examples.

We will finish our work looking at comparing and ordering fractions, consolidating working with both mixed numbers and improper fractions. We will then do a short knowledge check.

This week we will be looking at ordering and comparing fractions. We will revisit how to change fractions with different denominators into equivalent fractions. We will also look at putting them into ascending and descending order. Intially we will look at fractions less than a whole, but move onto mixed numbers.

We will complete our work on mixed numbers and improper fractions before moving on to sequencing fractions involving both mixed numbers and improper fractions. We will look at how we can arrange these in ascending and descending order.

This week we will be looking at switching between improper fractions and mixed numbers, before moving on to converting back the other way, simplifying wherever possible. We will also be revisiting work on equivalent fractions and using these to help us.

This week we will move on to learning about factors of numbers and how NOT to mix factors and multiples! The powerpoint attached shows the work we will be doing both in terms of identifying and then using factors to solve problems. We will also continue our work with equivalent fractions before moving onto working with both improper fractions and equivalent numbers. You can look through the attached powerpoint for examples of what our work will entail.

This week we have our identified multiples of numbers and realised how important it is to know our times tables! We used our understanding to then solve problems linked to mulitiples of numbers.The powerpoint give examples of what we have been doing in class; some pupils completed work that was more challenging than the examples and some completed work which was slightly easier. Pupils are able to choose their own activity to suit their own understanding. We are also starting our work with fractions by looking at specific terminology and then equivalent fractions.

In our final week exploring data analysis we will look at timetables, starting off with how we can read data from them and then moving on to answering questions involving probelm solving and reasoning.

Continuing our work on interpreting data within tables, we'll start to look at two-way tables and what information we can draw from these. We will also look at how we can complete tables with missing data.

We will consolidate our understanding of column subtraction and solve problems to show that we undertstand this method.

We'll be doing a little more work on line graphs before moving on to interpreting data in tables. This will also include looking at how we solve sum and difference problems. We will also use the colomn method to solve subrtraction claculations and work with numbers of up to 5 digits.

This week we will be concentrating on transferring data from tables to create our own line graphs. Ww will be looking at the importance of scale and correcting plotting of points. We'll make sure we look at possible areas of confusion and why it is important to get the correct data on the correct axis.

We will continue to interpret data within line graphs and look at solving sum and difference word problems.

This week we will start our statistics black by looking at what line graphs are, what they are more commonly used for and how we can interpret them.

This week we will complete our work on calculating area of irregular shapes before doing a short assessment on all that we've learnt regarding area and perimeter.

This week we will be using our skills in rounding and estimation to try and calculate the area of irregular shapes.

We will finish looking at calculating the area of compound shapes and use this knowledge to answer word problems relating to how this knowledge is used in modern life.

We will continue working on calculating the area of rectangles, answering problem solving type questions. We'll then move on to calculating the area of compund shapes, looking at how we can break down these more complex shapes and use the knowledge we've already learnt in order to calculate them.

This week we have started to look at whats involved when calculating area of basic rectangles. We will be looking at improving our fluency in this area before moving on to more problem solving type questions.

This week we will continue our work on perimeter by looking at calculating the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes, including how to calculate sides with missing lengths.

We will continue our place value work, by reading and writing numbers up to 1 million and also look at partitioning numbers. We will also start to look at calculating the perimiter of 2D shapes.

This week we will be learning about place value.
