# Upper Key Stage 2

Purchase of one or more packs of cards enables member access to Activity Plans and resources for Years 1 to 6.

Below is a list of indicative statements from the Upper KS 2 Mathematics Programme of Study, covered by the Activity Plans and additional resources.

**Year 5** Activity Plans

#### Number - Fractions

- compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number
- identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths
- recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number [for example, 2/5 + 4/5 = 6/5 = 1 1/5]
- add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number

#### Statistics

- solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in a line graph
- complete, read and interpret information in tables, including timetables.

#### Other objectives covered within the Year 5 activities - Number

- identify multiples and factors, including finding all factor pairs of a number, and common factors of two numbers
- solve problems involving multiplication and division including using their knowledge of factors and multiples

**Year 6** Activity Plans

#### Number – Fractions

- use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination
- compare and order fractions, including fractions > 1
- add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions
- multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form [for example, 1/4 × 1/2 = 1/8 ]
- divide proper fractions by whole numbers [for example, 1/3 ÷ 2 = 1/6 ]
- associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents [for example, 0.375] for a simple fraction [for example, 3/8 ]
- recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts.

#### Algebra

- use simple formulae
- express missing number problems algebraically

#### Statistics

- interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems
- calculate and interpret the mean as an average

#### Other objectives covered within the Year 6 activities - Number

- identify common factors, common multiples and prime numbers, found in Fractions lesson plan.

#### Ratio and Proportion

- solve problems involving the calculation of percentages [for example, of measures, and such as 15% of 360] and the use of percentages for comparison

### Upper KS2: Opportunities for **cross** curricular learning:

#### Science

- recording data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classification keys, tables, scatter graphs, bar and line graphs
- using test results to make predictions to set up further comparative and fair tests
- reporting and presenting findings from enquiries
- describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including microorganisms, plants and animals
- give reasons for classifying plants and animals based on specific characteristics

#### English

The use of Monstats Fact Files and Monstats cards can spark children’s imagination and support the development of composition and writing within the following UK National Curriculum statements: plan their writing by:

- identifying the audience for and purpose of the writing, selecting the appropriate form and using other similar writing as models for their own
- noting and developing initial ideas, drawing on reading and research where necessary
- in writing narratives, considering how authors have developed characters and settings in what pupils have read, listened to or seen performed

#### Draft and write by:

- selecting appropriate grammar and vocabulary, understanding how such choices can change and enhance meaning
- in narratives, describing settings, characters and atmosphere and integrating dialogue to convey character and advance the action
- précising longer passages
- using a wide range of devices to build cohesion within and across paragraphs
- using further organisational and presentational devices to structure text and to guide the reader [for example, headings, bullet points, underlining]

#### Evaluate and edit by:

- assessing the effectiveness of their own and others’ writing
- proposing changes to vocabulary, grammar and punctuation to enhance effects and clarify meaning
- ensuring the consistent and correct use of tense throughout a piece of writing
- ensuring correct subject and verb agreement when using singular and plural, distinguishing between the language of speech and writing and choosing the appropriate register
- proof-read for spelling and punctuation errors
