In Summer 1, we will focus on 4 key areas, in line with the national curriculum:
- Division (long division)
The curriculum states that pupils should be taught how to:
- divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context;
- divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate, interpreting remainders according to the context.
Decimals and Percentages:
- associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents [for example, 0.375] for a simple fraction [for example, 8 3 ];
- identify the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to three decimal places;
- multiply one-digit numbers with up to two decimal places by whole numbers;
- use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places;
- solve problems which require answers to be rounded to specified degrees of accuracy;
- recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts.
- use simple formulae;
- generate and describe linear number sequences;
- express missing number problems algebraically;
- find pairs of numbers that satisfy an equation with two unknowns;
- enumerate possibilities of combinations of two variables.
