Quick Quizz
What is the value of the 4 in the number 549,632?
1.hundred thousands
2.ten thousands
Comparing whole numbers to 100000 with three decimal places

Let's look at how to compare and order decimals, using number lines to help us.

Example 1

On the number line below we can see that 2.3 (two and three tenths) is less than 2.8 (two and eight tenths).

2.8 is five tenths more than 2.3.

Today we are looking at common factors. 

  • common factor is a number that can be divided into two different numbers, without leaving a remainder.
  • Often numbers can share more than one common factor.
  • It is possible to find the common factors of more than two numbers. Please click the link below and watch for further understanding.



Today the children are learning all about Square Numbers.

The children have been really busy learning the chunking method. They are building their confidence daily by putting the techniques they have learned in word problems.


This week the children will be learning Fractions.

Spring 1

This term the children are learning to tell the time, digitally and anologue.


When light from an object is reflected by a surface, it changes direction. It bounces off the surface at the same angle as it hits it.

Smooth, shiny surfaces such as mirrors and polished metals reflect light well. Dull and dark surfaces such as dark fabrics do not reflect light well.

Exploring symmetry with mirrors and Magna-Tiles from And Next Comes L What is reflection? - BBC Bitesize


Reflections are everywhere ... in mirrors, glass, and here in a lake. 
... what do you notice ?
Reflection in Lake Reflection Illustrated
Every point is the same distance from the central line !
... and ...
The reflection has the same size as the original image
The central line is called the Mirror Line ...

Can A Mirror Line Be Vertical?

Here my dog "Flame" shows a
Vertical Mirror Line (with a bit of photo magic)
In fact Mirror Lines can be in any direction.
Imagine turning the photo at the top in different directions ...
... the reflected image is always the same size, it just faces the other way:

WEIGHT in Grams & Kilograms


These are the most common measurements:
  • Grams
  • Kilograms
  • Tonnes
Grams are the smallest, Tonnes are the biggest.
Let’s take a few minutes and explore how heavy each of these are.


1 kilogram = 1,000 grams
A dictionary has a mass of about one kilogram.
Kilograms are great for measuring things that can be lifted by people (sometimes very strong people are needed of course!).
Kilograms are often written as kg (that is a "k" for "kilo" and a "g" for "gram), so "10 kg" means "10 kilograms".
Scales measure our weight using kilograms. An adult weighs about 70 kg. How much do you weigh?


But when it comes to things that are very heavy, we need to use the tonne. (1000kg = 1 tonne)
First we need to measure or wegh an object & then we can calculate either grams or kilograms.

Multiplying and dividing decimals

Decimals are used every day, for example, when using money. Knowing how to use decimal points and places when adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying is an important mathematical skill.

What are fractions? Do we need to learn about them? HMMMM... Lets take a look!

Sometimes 1 fraction has the same value as another even if you use different numbers... let´s take a look:)
