The main focus on maths this term is Place Value -
Place value is the value of each digit in a number.
For example, the 5 in 350 represents 5 tens, or 50; however, the 5 in 5,006 represents 5 thousands, or 5,000.
It is important for the children to be secure in their place value knowledge as it is built upon when we use our calculation skills.
Below is a really useful link, explaining place value and how to support at home
Please help to support your child with their maths by encouraging them to log into their Times Tables Rockstars Account - regular practice of times tables is essential in supporting all other areas of maths
They are also set a weekly maths challenge (on a Friday) on Math Shed. This links to the learning we have been doing in class that week.
All children have been given new logins and should be ready to go!
