St. Peter's Catholic Primary School
Following in Jesus' footsteps, we live, love and learn together as a school family to build a better world.

Please find below a selection of videos illustrating and explaining how key aspects of Mathematics are taught in Year 5 and Year 6.

2. Start from ones place value (right side of number).

3. Add these numbers.

4. Write down the ones value.

5. Carry any tens if the value you made was above ten. Put these under the next column.

6. Go onto next place value and add. (Don’t forget to add the carry if you have one)

7. Repeat for the next column until you are finished.

2. Put digits in the correct place value around the decimals.

3. Any blank spaces above other numbers include 0’s if you wish.

4. Add first column on the right (smallest value).

5. Write the value down.

6. Write any carry underneath next place value if needed.

7. Add the next column (including anything carried).

8. Continue for any other digits.

2. Put digits in the correct position around the decimals.

3. Any blank spaces above other numbers include 0’s if you wish.

4. Add tenths column on the right (smallest value).

5. Write the tenths value down.

6. Write any carry underneath if need.

7. Add the next column (including anything carried).

8. Continue for any other digits.

2. Write the largest number down.

3. Write the second number down so the places values are in the correct place. E.g. One above ones, tens above tens.

4. Start from the right hand side.

5. Do the top number take away the bottom number.

6. If you cannot do this then exchange.

7. Take a ten from the place value to the left on the top and put this by the number above.

8. Make sure you reduce the place value to the left on the top by one.

9. You may have to exchange more than once.

10. Carry on subtracting to get the answer.

2. Set this out with accurate place value.

3. Do the calculation remember to exchange if subtracting or carrying when adding.

4. Write down the answer.

5. Look at missing number calculation on the other side.

6. Use the inverse operation and the answer you found from the other side.

7. Do the required calculation.

8. The answer will be the missing number you require

2. Start from the right hand side.

3. If you have a number in the answer row and another number use the inverse and add the number together.

4. If you have a both numbers in the calculation section then do the subtraction.

5. If you can not do the subtraction then add the one from the exchange. then do the subtraction.

6. In the next column you will need to ensure that you add this exchange back onto this column.

7. If the answer row is larger than the top number then you have also exchanged.

2. Multiply the ones place value by the ones of the number below.

3. Record the answer underneath carrying any tens below.

4. Repeat with each digit from right to left always multiplying by the last digit of the second number.

5. Repeat with the next digit on the bottom number, writing this answer under the last. Make sure you put a zero in the ones place value.

6. When this row is done start a new row. Times the hundreds place value. Remember to put two zeros.

Add the two answers together.

2. Multiply the tenth first by the numbers above.

3. Remembering the carry and to add them.

3. On a new row add a 0.

4. Multiply the ones place value by the numbers above.

5. Add the two row together.

2. Multiply the ones place value by the ones of the number below.

3. Record the answer underneath carrying any tens below.

4. Repeat with each digit from right to left always multiplying by the last digit of the second number.

5. Repeat with the next digit on the bottom number, writing this answer under the last. Make sure you put a zero in the ones place value.

6. Add the two answers together.

2. Multiply the tenth by the numbers above.

3. Add the carry when needed.

3. Start a new row and put in a 0.

4. Multiply the one place value by the numbers above.

5. Add the two rows you have made to get the answer.

2. How many of the divisor go into the first digit of the dividend.

3. Write answer above.

4. Any remainders carry onto the next digit of the dividend.

5. Repeat for answer.

Remainder as fraction - put the remainder over the divisor.

Remainder as fraction - at end of answer add a decimal point and then put the remainder next to some zeros under the bus stop. Do this for one more place value.

2. How many of the divisor go into the first digit of the dividend.

3. Write answer above.

4. Any remainders carry onto the next digit of the dividend.

5. Repeat for answer.

6. If the digit in the dividend is less than the divisor write 0 and carry over everything to the next place value.

2. See how much of the divisor goes into dividend as normal. Start the problem as normal.

3.If the blank is above the bus stop then see how much the divisor goes into the dividend.

4. Write this number down.

5. If the blank is below the bus stop then times the divisor by the answer above.

2. How many of the divisor go into the first digit of the dividend.

3. Write answer above.

4. Any remainders carry onto the next digit of the dividend.

5. Repeat for answer.

Remainder as fraction - put the remainder over the divisor.

Remainder as fraction - at end of answer add a decimal point and then put the remainder next to some zeros under the bus stop. Do this for one more place value.

2. To the right hand side write out the coin numbers - 1,2,5,10,20 and 50 if needed.

3. Times the number you are dividing by the coin numbers. Use doubling, halving and multiplying by 10 to help.

4. Draw a grid of 3 columns.

5. Look at the coins to see which number would fit in most and write this down.

6. Do a subtraction to find the remainder.

7. Find which coin fits closest to this number and write this down.

8. Repeat steps 5 & 6.

9. Add the numbers down the left hand side of the grid and remember to include any remainders left.

2. Times the numerator and denominator of the fraction on the left by the denominator on the right fraction.

3. Times the numerator and denominator of the fraction on the right by the denominator on the left fraction.

4. Add the new numerators.

5. Keep the denominator the same.

6. Simplify if needed.

2. Multiply one fractions numerator and denominator by the same number so that both fractions have the same denominator.

3. Add the numerators

4. The denominators stay the same.

2. Look at the fractions that are left.

Either... multiply one fraction by a number so both denominators are the same OR... multiply both fractions by the fractions denominator.

3. Add the numerators.

4. Keep the denominators the same.

5. Add this new fraction to the wholes.

2. Multiply the ‘new’ numerators together.

3. Multiply the ‘new’ denominators together.

4. Change from an improper fraction or simplify if needed.

2. Times the whole number by the denominator.

3. Simplify if needed.

2. Then change the whole number into a fraction by putting it over one.

3. Multiply the numerators and denominators together.

4. If needed changed this into a mixed number fraction by seeing how many times the denominator goes into the numerator. This is your wholes. Anything left can be put as a fractions.

5. Add this to the answer from when you multiplied the wholes.

2. Times the denominators together.

3. Simplify if needed.

2. Multiply the numerators and denominators together.

3. If needed changed this into a mixed number fraction by seeing how many times the denominator goes into the numerator. This is your wholes. Anything left can be put as a fraction.
