In year 5 we've been working really hard to clearly show our understanding in maths. The children have been developing their ability to reason mathematically through use of written explanations and images. We are at the beginning of our journey towards mastery in maths but the children are making excellent progress. The examples below show children using clear explanations and mathematical images to deepen their understanding. We will aim to further deepen our understanding by: using a wider range of images; using clearer, more precise language in explanations; using various stories/contexts to explain; making links between maths and everyday life; comparing each area of maths with other areas; identifying examples and non-examples; and noticing patterns. Well done year 5!
