Developing your child’s mathematical skills Year 5 and 6

Addition  At the end of Year 5, your child should be able to use efficient written methods to add whole numbers and decimals with up to two places  At the end of Year 6, your child should be able to use efficient written methods to add whole numbers and decimals with up to two places in a range of contexts

Methods of addition  An empty number line  Partitioning  Column – most significant digit first least significant digit first carrying

Subtraction  At the end of Year 5, your child should be able to use efficient written methods to subtract whole numbers and decimals with up to two places  At the end of Year 6, your child should be able to use efficient written methods to subtract whole numbers and decimals with up to two places in a range of contexts

Methods of subtraction  Empty number line  Decomposition  Column

Multiplication  At the end of Year 5, your child should be able to refine and use efficient written methods to multiply HTU ×U, TU ×TU, and U.t ×U  At the end of Year 6, your child should be able to use efficient written methods to multiply integers and decimals by a one-digit integer, and to multiply two-digit and three-digit integers by a two-digit integer

Methods of multiplication  Times tables & related facts  Partitioning  Grid Method

Division  At the end of Year 5, your child should be able to refine and use efficient written methods to divide HTU ÷ U, TU ÷ U  At the end of Year 6, your child should be able to use efficient written methods to divide integers and decimals by a one (and two) digit integer

Methods of division  Inverse of times tables and related facts  Partitioning  Short division  Chunking

How to help your child  Develop their mental calculation skills by practising complements to 100, times tables, related division facts  Do a ‘wrong’ calculation – ask them to figure out what has happened  Involve them in ‘real life’ problems e.g. working out the cost of a meal if you are eating out
