Primary 4/5 K Learning Leaflet
August – October 2015
P4/5K will work on solving problems using a variety of strategies, working interactively in pairs or groups. The children will also continually self and peer assess to identify knowledge and next steps.
The Spheres and Cuboids will be learning their 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables’ and will use these facts to solve calculations. The will also focus on applying their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to solve word based problems.
The Pyramids will be learning their times tables up to and including x10. They will also focus on applying their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to generate relevant problems for others to solve.
Evaluation: P 4/5 K have shown that they can successfully identify the key information within word problems in order to arrive at the solution. Having focused on multiplication this term, we now feel confident to use that knowledge to explore division.
