The children have been working hard this week. We have looked at partitioning numbers, finding values of the same number, looking at greater than or less than numbers and rounding numbers.

Rounding is an important skill your child will be expected to use to estimate and to check answers to calculations.

You could help your child to practise rounding with the calculations below. For each sum, you and your child could round the numbers to the nearest 10, 100, or 1000 in order to estimate the answer.

3567 + 2332

6102 + 2923

1345 + 3348

8799 – 4889

9833 – 5541




Your child will  start learn to solve addition and subtraction problems involving numbers with more than four digits. They are  using lots of different methods, including using objects, diagrams such as grid methods and number lines. By the end of the topice, children will start to become more confident in methods such as column addition and column subtraction.


Below are different ways you can support your child in being secure in the types of calculations.
