Age: 9 - 10 Years - End of Year 5 Review
The Foxes Summer School includes Arithmetic that a child aged 9–10 would expect to have encountered by the end of School Year 5 . The material is grouped according to the new National Curriculum Attainment Targets for Year 5.

Click here for more detail on how we've updated our Summer Schools for the new National Curriculum.

All children learn and develop at different rates so we would advise you to look at the detail within each school to make sure you choose the package which will best support your child’s learning.

A range of Maths Skills is taught within each Maths Camp using Video Lessons and Learning Games, with plenty of opportunities for practising.

Within the Foxes Summer School , your child will explore 6 Maths Camps:

Camp 1: Understanding Numbers
Negative number lines
More detail...
Learn about negative numbers using number lines in the context of temperature, first ranging from -10 to +10, then -20 to +20. Hide

Multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000
More detail...
Learn to use place value to multiply increasingly larger numbers by 10, 100 or 1000, for future application to decimals, knowing exactly how many places digits will need to move. Check understanding of equivalent multiplications, such as multiplying by 1000 = multiplying by 100 and then 10. Hide

Dividing by 100 or 1000
More detail...
Learn to use place value to divide large numbers by 100 or 1000, so that understanding can later be applied to dividing decimal numbers. Hide

Dividing by 5 by using 10 and 2
More detail...
Learn to divide by 5 into 2 parts, so that more of it can be carried out mentally, and applied to workings of 3 digit numbers. For example, 670 ÷ 5 = (670 ÷ 10) x 2. Hide

Mutiplying by 5 by using 10 and 2
More detail...
Learn to multiply by 5 in 2 parts, so that more of it can be carried out mentally, and applied to workings of 3 digit numbers, checking on the use of brackets in this context. For example, 320 x 5 = (320 x 10) ÷ 2. Hide

Odd and even numbers in operations
More detail...
Identify patterns for whether an answer to an addition, subtraction or multiplication is odd or even, depending on whether odd or even or both types of numbers are used. Hide

Camp 2: Knowing Number Facts
Mixed 1 to 10 times tables
More detail...
A review of mixed times table questions up to 10 x 10, encouraging instant recall. Hide

1 to 12 Times tables
More detail...
Practise a mixture of all the times table facts up to 12x12, encouraging instant recall of all the times table facts Hide

Dividing by numbers 2 to 10
More detail...
A review of division by single digit numbers, using corresponding multiplication facts for help in working out, aiming for instant recall. Hide

Camp 3: Calculations
Multiplying by a multiple of 100 or 1000
More detail...
Learn to split multiplications by multiples of 100 or 1000 into 2 parts, first carrying out a single digit multiplication, then multiplying by 100 or 1000. For example, 8 x 7000 = 56 x 1000 = 56000.Hide

Division of 3 digit by 1 digit numbers
More detail...
Learn to use a variety of different division methods: firstly chunking, as is taught in many schools, then use draw-down, as preparation for full long division, and also short division, using only carry digits. Hide

Rounding remainders in word problems up or down
More detail...
Learn about answering word problems which involve remainders, building understanding about whether the remainder should be rounded up or down. For example, 17÷6 = 2R5, but an answer to a word problem may be 2 or 3, depending on the context. Hide

Camp 4: Fractions
1/16s and other equivalent fractions
More detail...
Look at equivalents to 1/16s, both in pictorial form as a fraction wall and by working them out numerically. Extend learning to other equivalent fractions, looking at some fraction families (range of equivalent fractions). Hide

1/10s, 1/100s, 1/1000s
More detail...
Learn and practise converting between equivalent 1/10s, 1/100s and 1/1000s, including reducing fractions to their lowest form. Hide

Camp 5: Decimals
Ordering decimals to up to 2 decimal places
More detail...
Learn to order decimal numbers systematically, starting with comparing the biggest place first, working through to the smallest. Work with decimals with 1 decimal place and then with 2 decimal places. Hide

Multiplying and dividing decimals by 10 and 100
More detail...
Learn to multiply and divide decimals by first using a place value mat to establish the principle of moving digits rather than the decimal point, then multiply and divide without a place value mat. For example: 7.08 ÷ 100 = 0.0708. Hide

Adding decimals to 2 decimal places
More detail...
Learn to line up the decimal numbers using the decimal points as reference points. Start with simpler additions not involving carrying and progress to the use of carry digits where necessary. Hide

Subtracting decimals to 2 decimal places
More detail...
Learn to line up the decimal numbers using the decimal points as reference points. Start with simpler subtractions not involving exchanging, and progress to the use of exchanging where necessary. Hide

Rounding decimals to 1 decimal place
More detail...
Learn to round decimals to 1 decimal place by first looking at a number line, then using a cut-off point. Work on rounding decimals with 2 decimal places, then progress to decimals with 3 decimal places, understanding that 4.437 will round to 4.4 rather than 4.5 when rounded to 1 decimal place. Hide

Multiplying a decimal by a single digit
More detail...
Learn to use column multiplication with multiplying decimals, starting with decimals with 2 decimal places and moving on to decimals with 3 decimal places. Estimation is encouraged to ensure that answers are sensible. For example, when working out 5.786 x 4, an estimate of 6 x 4 = 24 ensures an answer of 23.144 rather than 2.3144 or 231.44. Hide

Camp 6: Percentages
Converting between fractions and percentages
More detail...
Learn what percentage means and how to convert 1/100s to percentages, then move on to converting percentages into 1/100s. Hide

Finding 25%, 50% and 75% of 2 digit numbers
More detail...
Learn about finding percentages in the same way as finding fractions of quantities, so that knowing the equivalent fractions to percentages makes finding the percentages easier. Use the relationships between different percentages to help to develop quicker mental methods. For example, finding 25% of a number by halving it twice. Hide
