Missing Angles and Lengths
Children will consolidate their understanding of angles using degrees to measure and draw a range of angles. They apply this understanding to find and calculate missing angles within diagrams and 2-D shapes.
Coordinates and Shape
Children will develop their understanding of coordinates in all four quadrants, including developing skills using negative numbers, using this understanding to draw, translate and reflect shapes on a coordinate grid.
In this unit, children will build on their conceptual understanding of calculating with fractions, focusing on multiplication (of two proper fractions) and division (of a common fraction by an integer).
|Mathematics Year 5||
In this unit, children will identify and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles. They will learn how to use a protractor to measure and draw angles in degrees.
Fractions and Percentages
Children will calculate with fractions, starting with addition and subtraction and moving on to multiplying a fraction and a whole number. Children are introduced to percentage for the first time and come to understand that percentages, decimals and fractions are different ways of expressing proportions.
Children will review using coordinates to describe positions on a 2-D grid. Children identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a translation or a reflection and known that the shape has not changed.
Children will learn about the ancient civilisation and what life was like for then.
Gym- Floor Exercises
Children will be taught a range of movements across this gymnastics module.
In this unit the children will learn how to participate in football. This will lead to a football tournament against the other Y5/6 classes.
