In KS2 Maths as children advance to Year Five their knowledge of number sequences will increase. By now they should be able to recognise patterns that are increasing or decreasing by whatever amount in each step. They will also have a firm understanding of the properties of odd and even numbers and they will now be exposed to number sequences involving decimal numbers and fractions.
Number sequences involve finding a pattern in order to ascertain what the next number will be. Some patterns are straightforward, such as add 10, but others, like ones involving decimal numbers or fractions, can seem quite difficult to find. But once you know how, sequences with decimal numbers and fractions are just as easy to spot patterns in as ones made of whole numbers. It just takes a bit of practise.
Can you find the rules of these number sequences in this quiz for 9 -10 year olds?
