The remaining weeks left of the Autumn term will be focussing on consolidation of what the children have already learnt so far. This is to ensure pupils are fluent and secure with their basic skills.

The focus of the consolidation will be the following aspects:

•Count on/back from a given number in steps of 100/1000/10,000 up to and beyond 100,000

•Partition decimal numbers to 2dp

•Round decimals with 1dp to the nearest whole number

•Multiply and divide numbers mentally drawing upon known facts

•Count on/back in fraction and decimal sequences e.g. 2.5 or 1 ½

•Round any number up to 100,000 to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000

•Add/subtract: 4-digit and 1-digit numbers, a 4 digit and tens, a 4-digit number and hundreds and a 4-digit number and thousands and combinations of pairs of 2,3 or 4 digit numbers

•Find factors and factor pairs of each number up to and beyond 20

•Convert units of measurement (km and m; cm and m; cm and mm; gram and km, ml and L).
