Numeracy - January - February 2022

Mathematics & Numeracy – During Term 2 We will be learning to:

Primary 3

  • Count forwards and backwards in 1s and 2s within 100.
  • Recognise, read and write numbers within 100.
  • Know number “after”, “before” and “between” within 100.
  • Order a set of consecutive and non-consecutive numbers (increasing and decreasing) within 100.
  • Find the position of any number on a blank 100 grid.
  • Demonstrate value of any number within 100 in terms of tens and ones (units) using Base 10 materials.
  • Add or subtract 10 to any number using the 50 grid, using and explaining number patterns.
  • Add or subtract a multiple of 10 to a multiple of 10 using the 50 grid, using and explaining number patterns.
  • Know doubles to 10 + 10.
  • Know components of 10.
  • Find what must be added to a number to make 10.
  • Mentally subtract a single digit from 10, using both counting back and counting on (difference) together with knowledge of components of 10.
  • Know days of the week, months of the year and general time facts.
  • Be able to understand and read o'clock, half past and quarter past times on digital and analogue clocks.
  • Know the names and properties of 2D and 3D shapes.
  • Use given two criteria Carroll Diagrams to sort for negation, explaining completed diagram.


Primary 4

  • Count forwards and backwards in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s within 999.
  • Recognise, read and write numbers within 999.
  • Know number “after”, "before” and “between” within 999.
  • Find missing numbers in a sequence (increasing and decreasing) within 999.
  • Extend understanding to include wider range of fractions, using both whole shapes and sets of objects.
  • Know what must be added to a number to make 20.
  • Become confident in mental addition of single digits (with and without bridging 10).
  • Mentally find what must be added to a multiple of 10 to make 100.
  • Mentally find what must be added to any 2 digit number to make the next multiple of 10.
  • Add or subtract 11 to any number – followed by 21, 31, 41 etc.
  • Practice vertical addition with carrying over.
  • Develop a standard written method for vertical subtraction TU with exchange (decomposition)
  • Understand and develop quick recall of 2 and 10 times tables.
  • Know half and doubles.
  • Know the names and properties of 2D and 3D shapes.
  • Contruct and interpret Carroll, Tree and Venn diagrams.
  • Understand and use o'clock, half past, 5 minute time intervals past and to the hour in analogue and digital clock.

World Around Us - January - February 2022

Our new WAU topic for term 2 will be 'The Rainforest'.

We will be discovering lots of new and interesting things bout the rainforest through our Geography, Science, History, Art, Literacy, Music, P.E and Numeracy lessons.

Some of the activities we will be involved in are...

  • Learning where the rainforests are on the map.
  • How the rainforest works – layers of the rainforest.
  • The climate of the rainforest.
  • The produce and industry created within the rainforest.
  • The people who live in the rainforest.
  • The impact of the people in the rainforest – good and bad.
  • Animals that live in the rainforest.
  • The impact of deforestation.
  • How to make instruments with their body and other materials.
  • To work effectively within a group to complete a task.
  • Explore a range of sources and reflect on the information they’ve learnt to complete tasks based on rainforest animals.
