Do you know what 1.7 + 2.9 is?

 

When would you use decimals and when would you use fractions?

 

All this and more will be answered in Maths this term!

Your children need to practice their next set of times tables. To deepen your child's learning, we encourage children to practice the inverse of each multiplication fact. eg. 5 times 10 = 50 so 50 divided by 5 = 10.

 

It also may be beneficial for this unit of work to also focus on multiplying by ten. For example 6 x 7 = 42 so 60 x 7 = 420. You could further this by looking at decimals. eg. 0.6 x 7 = 4.2.
