Maths:
Now that we are approaching the end of the year, we will consolidate all learning from Year 6 and ensure the children are as well prepared as possible for secondary school. We will incorporate investigations into their learning to stretch and challenge their mathematical brains!
Mental Fluency
Mental fluency is the ability to make associations and connections in order to solve a problem/calculation easily and quickly. This will help the children secure known facts/methods and reinforce mathematical connections. The children will be given regular arithmetic tests to monitor their progress. You can support at home by asking your child 'quick fire' questions wherever possible. This could be during the car journey to school, at breakfast, waiting in queue etc. This could include: 
  • What number is 100 times greater than 0.29?
  • Calculate 17% of 670
  • Divide 4600 by 8
  • Write five million, three hundred and eighty thousand in words
  • A square has a perimeter of 52cm. What is its area?
  • Express 2/5 as a percentage and a decimal
  • Subtract 4 from - 17
  • Multiply 1.1 by 11
  • What is the total of 0.19, 0.038 and 1.5?
  • Find 30% of £2.60
