This term we will be covering the mathematical strands of addition and subtraction, money and multiplication and division!


We start this term by continuing to develop our addition and subtraction skills.


We will learn to:

  • add three single digits together

  • add and subtract 2 2-digit numbers  



The children will then move on to learning about money!


They will learn to:


  • recognise and use symbols for pounds (£) and pence (p); combine amounts to make a particular value
  • find different combinations of coins that equal the same amounts of money
  • solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money of the same unit, including giving change


Multiplication and Division

The children will begin to learn to:


  • recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers
  • calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication (×), division (÷) and equals (=) signs
  • show that multiplication of 2 numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of 1 number by another cannot
  • solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts.
