At St. George's we use a mastery approach to teaching Mathematics which is rich in contextual understanding and uses many visual and concrete resources to ensure all children comprehend.
Autumn 2 - This half-term we are focusing on Spine 2: Multiplication and Division
We will be studying:
Spine 2.14: Multiplication: partitioning leading to short multiplication (Review from Year 4)
Students practise their skills using the short multiplication algorithm, using it to multiply two/three-digit numbers by single digit numbers and regroup where necessary.
Spine 2.15: Division: partitioning leading to short division (Review from Year 4)
Students practise their skills using the short division algorithm, using it to divide two/three-digit numbers by single-digit numbers and exchange where necessary.
Spine 2.19: Calculation: multiply and divide fractions by whole numbers
Students develop strategies for multiplying and dividing decimal fractions by whole numbers, including combining known facts with unitising, multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100, and using adjusting strategies.
Spine 2.29: Decimal place-value knowledge, multiplication and division
Students develop efficient calculation strategies, and connect knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 10/100/1,000 to understanding of place value, including application to conversion between metric units of measure.

Children are expected to know their timestables to 12 x 12 and associated division facts fluently. Each week we complete a varied table practise test to increase speed. After the test, Children are asked to identify which timestable they need to work on independently at home. Children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars which they can play at home and even challenge friends and teachers!
