At the beginning of every year, we explore place value, as this underpins every area of maths that we will encounter throughout the year. We will explore how to recognise all the numbers up to 1,000,000, partitioning, writing numbers to 1,000,000 (in words, expanded form and partitioning) and using a number line, comparing and ordering numbers and finish with rounding numbers.
Addition and Subtraction
Following our place value unit, we will move on to addition and subtraction. n Year 5, your child will solve problems involving numbers with more than four digits. They will be able to mentally solve problems involving large numbers, and will tackle longer multi-step calculations.
