Year 5

Tute’s team of experienced teachers have planned our lessons to work alongside what students are studying in school; to enable catch-up, to consolidate something that was difficult to master in class or to help revise for exams. To make is easy to choose lessons for different subjects, year groups and levels, we have organised lessons into topics that are fully aligned with the National Curriculum ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the curriculum that makes sense!

All you need to do is select the topic and then the level you feel is appropriate and you will find a list of suitable lessons that you can book for just £12 inc. VAT

Adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.

This topic will cover methods of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing whole numbers. We will start with mental addition and subtraction where we will apply strategies such as number bonds, near tens and partitioning. Written forms of addition and subtraction concentrate on using the column method and will include ‘door-stepping’ and ‘borrowing’. Short and long methods of division will focus on the ‘bus stop’ method, and multiplication will teach three different methods; column, grid and Napier’s bones. Each method is followed by focussing on arithmetic with worded questions, initially with adding and subtracting and then by multiplying and dividing.

Mental addition and subtraction strategies.

To apply mental addition strategies and to apply mental subtraction strategies.

Written methods of addition and subtraction.

To apply written addition strategies and to apply written subtraction strategies.

Word problems using addition and subtraction.

To solve one and two step word problems using addition and to solve one and two step word problems using subtraction.

Short and long division.

To identify and demonstrate the process to solve short division and to identify and demonstrate the process to solve long division.

Short and long multiplication.

To multiply a two-digit number with a one digit number, to multiply a two-digit number with a two-digit number and to multiply numbers using the Napier’s bones method.

Word problems using multiplication and division.

To solve word problems using multiplication and to solve word problems using division.

Negative numbers and decimals.

This topic will cover negative numbers and decimals. We start by looking at adding, subtracting and ordering negative numbers and then use them in the context of temperature and money to solve word problems. We then move on to boost the student’s confidence with decimals across the full topic starting with adding and subtracting, before moving on to the rules of multiplying and dividing. We will be considering place value and the basis and rules of rounding whole numbers and decimals.

Negative numbers.

To show a negative number on a number line and to identify the bigger number.

Word problems using negative numbers.

To add and subtract negative numbers in real life situations.

Adding and subtracting decimals.

To add decimals using the same number of decimal places and different decimal places, to subtract decimals using the same number of decimal places and different decimal places.

Multiplying with decimals.

To explore different methods of multiplying with decimals.

Dividing decimals.

To divide decimals by 10 and 100 and to divide decimals using short division.

Rounding numbers, including decimal places.

To round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and whole number and to round numbers to a given number of decimal places.

Multiples, factors, fractions and percentages.

This topic will cover multiples, factors, fractions and percentages. We will first Investigate and find multiples and factors of numbers, and then use this skill to determine the highest common factor (HFC) and lowest common multiple (LCM) of sets of numbers.
We then apply this knowledge to help us to simplify fractions and to recognise equivalent fractions, which we will use to enable us to add and subtract fractions with different denominators. Following on from this we will learn a process to change mixed numbers into improper fractions, and how it can be reversed. We will then look at how to calculate any percentage of a number, and how to use this process to work out percentage increase, before finally using all of the skills to solve everyday problems with fractions and percentages.

Multiples and Factors

To find factors of whole numbers and to find multiples of whole numbers.

Highest Common Factor and Lowest Common Multiple.

To determine the highest common factor of 2 and 3 sets of numbers and to determine the lowest common multiple of 2 and 3 numbers.

Simplifying fractions.

To identify equivalent fractions and to express fractions in their most simplified form.

Adding and subtracting fractions.

To add and subtract fraction, to change improper fractions into mixed numbers and adding and subtracting with different denominators.

Percentages of numbers.

Calculating 50%, 10% and 1% of numbers,
calculating different percentages and increasing amounts by different percentages.

Word problems using fractions and percentages.

To apply fraction and percentage knowledge to solve word problems and to explain to methods used to correctly answer word problems.
