This term, we will be revisiting place value, addition and subtraction, and multiplication and division to consolidate previously learnt skills and gain new knowledge.


Place Value:

  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a four-digit number;
  • Count backwards through 0 to include negative numbers;
  • Round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1,000;
  • Solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above and with increasing large positive numbers;


Addition and Subtraction:

  • add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate;
  • estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation;
  • solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.


Multiplication and Division:

  • recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations;
  • multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout;
  • solve problems involving multiplying and adding, including using the distributive law to multiply two-digit numbers by 1 digit, integer scaling problems and harder correspondence problems such as n objects are connected to m objects;
  • multiply numbers up to 4 digits by a one- or two-digit number using a formal written method, including long multiplication for two-digit numbers;
  • multiply and divide numbers mentally, drawing upon known facts;
  • divide numbers up to 4 digits by a one-digit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders appropriately for the context.
