Year 5 + -

These are components of addition and subtraction that are taught in Year 5. Below you will find resources that you may find useful in supporting your child. 


Addition and subtraction:

  •          add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods (columnar addition and subtraction)
  •          add and subtract numbers mentally with increasingly large numbers
  •          use rounding to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, levels of accuracy
  •          solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which  operations and methods to use and why.
The following videos show the paper methods (found in the abstract column on the calculation policy) taught in Year 5.
