### Summer 1

### Spring 2

### Information about SATs

### English

During this half term we will focus on the following areas:

Fiction- action story based on the text 'cog-heart'

Non-fiction - non-chronological report based around the layers of the amazon rain forest.

Reading - discussion texts for and against deforestation in the Amazon rainforest, and other non-fiction based cross curricular reading linked to South America

Poetry based around South America and the rainforest.

Handwriting - developing consistent size and shape, and their own fluent joined style.

Spelling - securing common suffixes and prefixes, plus year 5&6 common exception words.

### Maths

During this half term we will focus on the following areas:

**Number**

- identify and position positive and negative numbers on a number line
- compare negative numbers using < >
*e.g. -6**°C**¨**4°C,**6**°C**¨**-4**°C,*-*6**°C**¨**-4**°C,**-4**°C**¨**-6**°C* - order a set of positive and negative numbers in context
*e.g. Order the following places from coldest to warmest:**Russia 7°C, Antarctic Peninsula -10*^{o}C, Canada -73.5°C, Greenland –64.9^{o}C. How much colder is it in Greenland than Russia? - calculate intervals between positive and negative numbers by finding the difference
*What is the difference in temperature between the inside of a freezer at -18°C and outside the freezer at 15°C? The temperature inside an aeroplane is 19°C. The temperature outside the plane is -31°C.What is the difference in temperature?* - solve problems involving negative numbers in different contexts
*e.g. The temperature in Ottawa dropped 6 degrees from**4°C. What is the new temperature?**In one month, the temperature at the South Pole dropped from**-28°C to -55°C. Work out the difference between the highest and lowest temperature. If the temperature rose by 8°C, what would the new temperature be?*

**Ratio and proportion**

- secure the knowledge that a percentage is a way of expressing a fraction as parts of a hundred, that per cent means in each hundred
- know that 10% can be found by dividing the amount by 10, that 1% can be found by dividing by 100
- investigate making different percentages of amounts using known and related facts
*.* - explain how to find a percentage of an amount mentally
*e.g. 17% of 200* - calculate percentages that go beyond multiples of 10
*e.g. 15% of 120g, 85% of 4m, 11% of £34, 99% of £15 Would you rather have 22% of £56 or 15% of £70?**A school party of 50 is at the Tower of London. 52% are girls. 10% are adults. How many are boys? A football team played 15 games. They won 60%. How many games did they lose? Amy scored 60 out of 80. Kim scored 148 out of 200. Who did better: Amy or Kim? A coat costs £35. It has a 10% discount in a sale. What is its sale price? 10 red sweets are 25% of the total in a jar. How many sweets altogether are in the jar?* - solve missing number problems e.g. 20% of ¨ = 12m, ¨% of 70 = 21
- write a number as a percentage of another
*e.g. There are 10 boys and 15 girls in the class, what percentage are girls? What percentage of £2 is 35p, of 5kg is 200g? What percentage of the large shape is the smaller shape?* - solve problems involving percentages
*e.g. A radio normally costs £50 but has £10 off in the sale. Headphones normally cost £20 but they have £5 off in the sale. Which is the biggest percentage discount?* - link percentages to pie charts in Statistics
*e.g. 20% of 360**°*

**Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division**

- use brackets to explore the order of operations using acronyms such as BODMAS to support (brackets first then ÷ x + -)
*e.g. (34 – 18) x 4 brackets then multiply* - carry out calculations involving the four operations using knowledge of the order of operations
*e.g. (4 x 9) +**¨**= 41 using the digits 2, 4, 5, 7 and 9 make each of the following number: 41, 59, 93, 87 and 160* - estimate to check answers to calculations to determine levels of accuracy
- divide three-digit numbers by two-digit numbers using the formal written method of long division, expressing remainders as whole numbers
*e.g. 999 ÷ 18* - secure long multiplication of three-digit numbers by a two-digit number, using the formal written method of long multiplication
*e.g. 467 x 28* - long multiplication of four-digit numbers by a two-digit number, using the formal written method of long multiplication
*e.g. 2547 x 36* - solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division

**Geometry – properties of shape**

- identify and explain the circumference, diameter and radius of a circle
- know that the diameter (d) of a circle is twice its radius (r) and can be written as d=2r
*e.g. What is the radius of a circle with a diameter of 23cm? If I halve the radius of a circle, what will happen to its diameter?* - construct a circle with given dimensions using a compass and a rule
*e.g. Draw a circle that has a radius of 4cm. Draw a circle with a diameter of 7cm.* - identify angles on a straight line and know that angles on a straight line total 180°
- identify when angles meet at a point and know that angles at a point total 360°
- know that when two straight lines cross they produce vertically opposite angles
*e.g.*Measure and explain the relationship between the angles when two straight lines cross - find unknown angles
