Solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above in familiar and unfamiliar contexts.

Can demonstrate an understanding of place value, including large numbers and decimals 

Solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in context, deciding which operations and methods to use and why

Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division

Use estimation to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, an appropriate degree of accuracy.

Multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication

It is ESSENTIAL that your child fluently knows their times tables both division facts and multiplication and have quick recall on these. This is ongoing homework for them and is vital to their progress this year - they should have their x tables rockstars password and every Friday whoever is the highest in their challenge group will be rewarded and they will be celebrated in class. If you do not have it then please email me.
 AWARDS
This year we have incorporated the Learning Passport within a document that recognises children’s achievements in school and the wider community. What is expected in order for children to achieve their ’Ambassador Award’ comes under 4 headings: 
  • Citizenship
  • Relationships
  • Learning
  • Behaviour and conduct
Each section has elements that underpin the values that as a school we hold dear. We believe that learning is something that continues every minute of the waking day and it is important to recognise children’s achievements not only in lessons but beyond. Adults in school will discuss each section with the children and how they can meet the criteria identified; we are hoping that the children will be able to take some ownership of the passport themselves! Have a look at the Ambassador passport the Year 6 children will be working through this year to help them achieve their Ambassador Awards!

Thursday 1st September - INSET DAY

Friday 2nd September - INSET DAY
