In Maths we will use Hamilton planning to explore:
- Place Value 3-digit and 4-digit numbers
- Addition and Subtraction (mentally and using partitioning and column methods)
- Multiplication and Division (3s, 4s and 8s).
We will consolidate and develop our knowledge and skills in these areas throughout the academic year. Our planning returns to each area regularly, giving our learners a good opportunity to recap, consolidate and further develop their learning.
