This term we have been focusing on place value and the four operations. We started off working on partitioning numbers and understanding the place value of each digit up to thousands.
We then progressed onto column addition and subtraction.
In the pictures above, we have examples of how to solve addition and subtraction calculations using the column method as well as some explanations on how to do it.
We have spent lots of time this term developing our reasoning skills and how to answer questions fully and explain our answers in detail.
For this half term, we have starting working on multiplication, in particular learning tricks to help us with our times tables.
