Contents The New Curriculum – what’s new in Key Stage 2 The 4 operations – including calculation methods and progression Mental Mathematics End of Year Expectations Your turn to have a go/Using and Applying Sample questions for the new tests in 2016 Problem Solving How you can help at home
Aims Enable you to understand the changes occurring in mathematics due to the new curriculum Provide you with a greater understanding of how mathematics is taught in school and progression of the 4 operation methods through Key Stage 2. See the importance of mental mathematical skills and the strategies children are taught. Enable you to see the types of different questions children will be asked to do by the end of Year 6. Help you understand how you can help your child at home.
The New Curriculum The aim of the new curriculum is that children develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and the ability to solve problems Year 3-5 covers four topics - Number, geometry, measure and statistics/ Year 6 covers two additional areas – ratio and proportion and algebra Problem Solving is taught discretely and embedded within each area of mathematics Curriculum is divided into Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2 The 2016 assessment tests will be based on the new curriculum content Calculators introduced at the end of KS2
The New Curriculum How we are implementing the new curriculum: Years 3-5 are following the new curriculum Year 6 are following the objectives from the old curriculum In each year group the expectations are higher
The New Curriculum New Expectations By the end of year 4 pupils should: Recall multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12 Count in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25, 1000 Extend and develop work with increasingly complex fractions Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using formal written methods of column addition and subtraction. Multiply two and three digits numbers by a one digit number using a formal written layout.
The New Curriculum New Expectations By the end of year 6 pupils should: Be fluent in written methods for all four operations, including long multiplication and division, and in working with fractions, decimals and percentages. Solve multi-step problems Solve problems involving ratio and proportion Use simple formulae and express mathematical problems algebraically Reason mathematically
The 4 Operations Calculation Methods and Progression (Calculation policy)
Mental Mathematics It is essential children have secure knowledge and recall of mental facts including: Place Value including decimals Number bonds Times tables from 0 to 12! Corresponding division facts Rounding to enable estimation of answers
Mental Mathematics Mental Mathematic Strategies: Use number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 transferable to 1,000 and decimals Multiplication and division by 10, 100, 1,000, 0.1 Use doubles and near doubles Partition into thousands, hundreds, tens and units Adding near multiples of 10. Adding the multiple then add or subtract 1 Subtracting near multiples of 10. Subtracting the multiple then subtracting or adding 1. These are transferable to multiples of 100, 1,000 etc.
