What are we learning?
Our initial Literacy work will be based on the book Clockwork.
Children are consolidating knowledge of the four operations and developing speed whilst calculating with fractions, decimals and percentages in anticipation for their SAT's. Similarly, newer concepts such as algebra, ratio, long division and graphs are being introduced to the children.

There are still far too many children in Year 6 who do not know all of their times tables by heart. Tables are an essential part of maths and feed into almost all areas of the maths curriculum. Children MUST know there tables thoroughly if they are to gain a good level in the maths SAT. Remember to use TT Rockstars to help challenge yourself with times tables.
