**The key focus of mathematics in Year 5 is to ensure your child is confident and increasingly fluent working with integers up to 1 000 000 and to three decimal places. Their knowledge of written methods for addition and subtraction should now be secure and swiftly extended to include larger numbers and calculating with decimals. Written methods for short multiplication and division, calculating with fractions and percentages will be further developed. They will advance their ability to solve a wide range of increasingly complex problems using their knowledge of number and calculation. Work in geometry and measures will consolidate and extend knowledge developed in number.**
