Year 5 Maths Plans

We provide Hamilton Year 5 maths both as weekly plans (below) and as short blocks. We will eventually be phasing out the plans, as we believe our short blocks offer you all of the same advantages and more. Find out more about the advantages of Hamilton's short blocks.

Place value

Know what each digit represents in six-digit numbers; use place value to add and subtract; compare numbers up to 1 million, use < and > signs; place six-digit numbers on number lines; round six-digit numbers to the nearest 100 or 1000; use negative numbers in context of temperature; calculate rises and falls in temperature. Methods include using landmarked and vertical number lines and calculators to check answers.

+ Details
Addition and subtraction

Use place value to add and subtract; add and subtract near multiples of 100 and 1000; use counting up to subtract four digit-numbers from multiples of 1000; subtract pairs of two-digit numbers to one decimal place. Use Frog to find change from £100; use column addition to add amounts of money; use Frog to find the difference between amounts of money. Mental subtraction by counting back.

+ Details
Place value and addition

Use place value to add and subtract numbers with 1 or 2 decimal places; multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000; round numbers with 2 decimal places to the nearest whole and tenth; use written addition to add pairs of numbers with 1, 2 or 1 and 2 decimal places; use rounding to estimate totals; begin to add three numbers with 2 decimal places. Methods used include expanded and compact column addition to add decimals.

Co-ordinates and line graphs

Plot points and draw polygons in two quadrants; work out new co-ordinates after a translation; reflect a shape and write the new co-ordinates; draw a line graph and read intermediate points. Draw a conversion graph of imperial to metric units and use it to read off equivalent measures. Understand and use approximate equivalences between metric units and common imperial units such as inches, pounds and pints.

+ Details
Multiplication and division

Find lowest common multiples and highest common factors; use mental strategies to multiply and divide by 5, 20, 6, 4 and 8. Use short multiplication to multiply 4-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers. Use rounding to approximate products. Use factors and multiples in mental multiplication and understand that multiplication is commutative. Methods used include grid method and short multiplication.

+ Details
Fractions and decimals

Compare fractions with related denominators using equivalence; find unit and non-unit fractions of amounts; find fractions, multiply and divide to solve word problems. Know decimal equivalents for halves, quarters, fifths, tenths and hundredths. Methods used include chunking to divide decimals. Includes bar model examples.

+ Details
Multiplication and division

Use written methods to divide three-digit numbers by single-digit numbers; multiply unit and non-unit fractions by whole numbers, writing any improper fractions as mixed numbers. Methods used include short division and number lines to multiply fractions. Includes bar model examples.

+ Details
Place value and subtraction

Understand place value in 6-digit numbers; use place value to add and subtract; place 6-digit numbers on a line; order and compare 6-digit numbers; find a number between two 6-digit numbers; round 6-digit numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10,000 or 100,00; use decomposition to subtract pairs of five-digit numbers and four-digit numbers from five digit numbers; solve word problems. Methods used for written subtraction include expanded, compact decomposition and Frog / counting up.

+ Details
Perimeter, area and volume

Find the perimeters of rectangles and composite shapes; work out the missing lengths of sides in order to find perimeters; find the area of rectangles including squares; estimate then count to find the area of irregular shapes; calculate the area from scale drawings; estimate and find the volume of shapes by making it with centimetre cubes.

+ Details
Number and place value

Multiply and divide whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1000; place numbers with two decimal places on a line, round to the nearest tenth or whole; use counting up to subtract pairs of numbers with the same number of decimal places, then different numbers of places; use counting up to find change and differences in prices; solve subtraction word problems. Methods used include Frog/counting up subtraction and using numberlines. Includes bar model examples.

+ Details
Addition and subtraction

Use column addition to add and subtract four-digit and five-digit numbers; add and subtract numbers mentally; use short multiplication to multiply four-digit numbers by single-digit numbers; use short division to divide four-digit numbers by single-digit numbers. Methods used include expanded and compact column addition, expanded decomposition, adding near multiples, short multiplication and division and grid method for multiplication.
