Expectations for Year Groups
There are high expectations for Numeracy at Our Lady of Grace Juniors. Please help your child to learn the facts that they need in their year group so that they can grow in confidence in the subject and be ready for the challenges of the next year group.
By the end of year 3, it is expected that all children know 2 – 5 and 10 times tables and their number bonds to ten and twenty mentally for quick recall (to use them to add to 100 and 200).
By the end of year 4, it is expected that all children are able to add mentally near multiples of 10 and 20 and know ALL their times tables by heart. Please help your child to learn them!
By the end of year 5, it is expected that all children are able to multiply and divide decimals by 10 and 100 and know decimal and percentage equivalents for common fractions.
By the end of year 6, it is expected that all children are able to choose the correct operation for word problems and use their knowledge from all other years to solve a range of maths problems and investigations.
Please see the Calcuations Policy below to explain how each operation is taught in each year group.
This can be particularly helpful when your child is doing homework!
Together we can make numeracy fun!
