In year 5 children should extend their understanding of the number system and place value to include larger integers. This should develop the connections that pupils make between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio.


Children should develop their ability to solve a wider range of problems, including increasingly complex properties of numbers and arithmetic, and problems demanding efficient written and mental methods of calculation. In geometry and measures you will start to consolidate and extend your knowledge developed in number. You will also classify shapes with increasingly complex geometric properties and learn the vocabulary needed to describe them.


By the end of year 5, children will become more confident in written methods for all four operations, including long multiplication and division, and in working with fractions, decimals and percentages.


Children should read, spell and pronounce mathematical vocabulary correctly.
