Year 5 Home Learning

We  have uploaded 2 videos that demonstrate how we teach children and how they can practise the activities at home.

Get them to master their thinking and process.

By Year 5 we expect our children to have a core set of knowledge that allows them to count forwards and backwards.

That includes:

1.  Knowledge of place value and how columns are related.

For example, a tenth is ten times smaller than a one.  0.2 is one tenth on 2.  This means that we would work one to column to the right if we are multiplying etc.

1.  Mastery of number bond facts.  They know that 8+7= 15.  Therefore, when they calculate:
• 138+7 = 145 they know it will end in 5 (moving into the next 10).
• 700+8000=1500 (15 hundred or 2 columns to the left).
• 0.8+0.7=1.5 (15 tenths)
• 48.7+0.8= 49.5 (notice the pattern or 48 + 1.5)
1.  Mastery of times table and division facts up to 10 x 10 is vital.  So they can learn that:
• 7 x 8 = 56
• 700 x 8 = 5600 (5 thousand and 6 hundred or 56 hundred)
• 0.8 x 0.7 = 5.6 (56 tenths and rule is that I am calculating one column smaller – to the right)
• 80 x 70 = 5600 (working 2 columns to the right)

Or for division:

56 ÷ 7 = 8

56 ÷ 70= 0.8 (I am dividing by a number 10 times bigger that makes the answer 10 times smaller)

Four number lines below demonstrate how we apply known facts and patterns.  Initially jottings help to explain the pattern and children have a visual pattern to follow.  We would aim to remove this and then count without any visual aids.

When we are counting we might practice these together

Below are hyperlinks to mathematical games that are used regularly by the children in school to become more fluent and confident in key mathematical skills.

Children will have been provided with a username and password for Mangahigh, Numbergym and TTRockstars to access the apps from home. The other websites can be accessed without a username or password.
