It is our aim and expectation that children will be fluent in place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.  The website below is a fun way for children to develop this instant recall. Please also find attached some useful division rules for the children to learn. Spring Term- Jan and Feb- Children need to know the Key Instant Recall Facts for Autumn 1, Autumn 2 and Spring 1- please see link below.

Specific Maths homework may be given occasionally, but (as in Y4) the expectation is that

the children are fluent in the Key Instant Recall facts for this term (and all previous terms).
