This half term we will start by learning how to find the area and perimeter of rectangles and compound shapes. 

We will then be developing our methods for x and ÷ operations, before finally beginning to learn more about fractions.


Have a go at working through the Year 4 workbook to refresh your memory of place value before having a go at the Year 5 workbook.
