Aims Key changes An overview of your child’s learning journey in KS1 Practical ways to support maths at home
Key Changes to the programme of study Five-year-olds will be expected to learn to count up to 100 (compared to 20 under the current curriculum) and learn number bonds to 20 (currently up to 10) Simple fractions (1/4 and 1/2) will be taught from KS1, and by the end of primary school, children should be able to convert decimal fractions to simple fractions (e.g. 0.375 = 3/8) By the age of nine, children will be expected to know times tables up to 12x12 (currently 10x10 by the end of primary school) Calculators will not be introduced until near the end of KS2, to encourage mental arithmetic
Changes to Assessment Removal of levels Transition to new system by Spring 2015
Year 2 Eventually children will be able to use the most efficient method when solving problems. Here are a few: 16 + 4 + 9 Look for pairs of numbers that total 20 7 + 5 + 21 Put the larger number first then count on 8 + 3 + 8 Add the doubles 39 - 14 Subtract 10 to give 29, then subtract 4 42 - 9 Subtract 10 to give 32, then add 1. We call this adjusting 74 - 52 Subtract 50 to give 24, then subtract 2. When a child has a solid understanding of place value, they will see that they do not need to count forward or back in ones.
