As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths textbooks and workbooks in school. To find out more, visit http://www.st-lukes.hants.sch.uk/click-here-for-parent-videos-for-singapore-maths/ to watch parent videos all about how we teach Maths at St Luke's.
The table below highlights the textbook and chapters that we are learning in Year 5. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. If you wish to purchase a copy of the Maths No Problem books, these are available to order at http://www.mathsnoproblem.co.uk/mathematics/primary-key-stage1-and-key-stage-2/maths-no-problem.html.
Parents and children can help at home by:
- Continuing to practise the current (or previous) focus skills (see below table).
- Practise using the IXL (https://uk.ixl.com/) and My Maths (https://www.mymaths.co.uk/) online learning tools.
- Ensuring all times tables up to 12 x 12 are learnt and can be used fluently.

Productive third week of Maths No Problem learning! Lots of spotting and continuing number patterns and beginning to explore rounding our six-digit numbers to different amounts.
15.09.17 - Week 2 Update
This week we have continued looking at the value of digits in some very large (up to 1 000 000) numbers, particularly focusing on working out which number of several is greater and working out the difference between them. We've also stepped up our practice of our speed maths and times table skills!

Made a great start to our Maths learning this week, using our problem-solving skills as police detectives as well as beginning to explore how to read and write some HUGE numbers!
