Maths Key Instant Recall Facts
Key Instant Recall Facts.
These are the number skills and strategies that we would like your children to be familiar with as good foundations for Year 6 mathematics.
It may be that your child already meets our expectation in one or more of the suggestions but I hope you can work together by choosing other options from the list to work on. Each area can be extended in many ways.
I appreciate that some children will need to just choose a couple of these to concentrate on in order to make the best progress.
The KIRF for Year 6 this half term are:
We will use and apply all these in metal arithmetic and in our problem solving and reasoning.
Thank you for your support. If you have any questions please do ask me.
ACADEMIC YEAR 2016-17
As you will read in a letter to all parents which is being sent out after the half term holiday we are introducing Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs) in each year group which we hope the children can practise at home to support our fluency in Maths work in school.
For Year 6, this half term please could you work on
all times tables to make sure they are instant recall
number bonds to 100, 1000
e.g know 34+66=100, 342+658=1000
2 decimal place number bonds to 1 and 10
e.g. know 0.34+0.66=1.00, 2.59+7.41=10.00
The best way for your children to practise the number bonds facts is by being efficient at counting on in multiples of 1,10,100.
Thank you for your support. Please do ask me, or ask the children to ask me, if you have any queries.
