In maths this year you will learn



Number - number and place value

  • read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1,000,000 and determine the value of each digit
  • count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1,000,000
  • interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through 0
  • round any number up to 1,000,000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000
  • solve number problems and practical problems that involve all of the above
  • read Roman numerals to 1,000 (M) and recognise years written in Roman numerals

Number - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division

  • add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods (columnar addition and subtraction)
  • add and subtract numbers mentally with increasingly large numbers
  • use rounding to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, levels of accuracy
  • solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why
  • identify multiples and factors, including finding all factor pairs of a number, and common factors of 2 numbers
    know and use the vocabulary of prime numbers, prime factors and composite (non-prime) numbers
    establish whether a number up to 100 is prime and recall prime numbers up to 19
    multiply numbers up to 4 digits by a one- or two-digit number using a formal written method, including long multiplication for two-digit numbers
    multiply and divide numbers mentally, drawing upon known facts
    divide numbers up to 4 digits by a one-digit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders appropriately for the context
    multiply and divide whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1,000
    recognise and use square numbers and cube numbers, and the notation for squared (²) and cubed (³)
    solve problems involving multiplication and division, including using their knowledge of factors and multiples, squares and cubes
    solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and a combination of these, including understanding the meaning of the equals sign
    solve problems involving multiplication and division, including scaling by simple fractions and problems involving simple rates

Number - Fractions (including decimals and percentages)

  • 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, + = = 1 ]
  • add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, and denominators that are multiples of the same number
  • multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams
  • read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = ]
  • recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents
  • round decimals with 2 decimal places to the nearest whole number and to 1 decimal place
  • read, write, order and compare numbers with up to 3 decimal places
  • solve problems involving number up to 3 decimal places
  • recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to ‘number of parts per 100’, and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal fraction
  • solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of , , , , and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25


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


  • convert between different units of metric measure [for example, kilometre and metre; centimetre and metre; centimetre and millimetre; gram and kilogram; litre and millilitre]
  • understand and use approximate equivalences between metric units and common imperial units such as inches, pounds and pints
  • measure and calculate the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes in centimetres and metres
  • calculate and compare the area of rectangles (including squares), including using standard units, square centimetres (cm²) and square metres (m²), and estimate the area of irregular shapes
  • estimate volume [for example, using 1 cm³ blocks to build cuboids (including cubes)] and capacity [for example, using water]
  • solve problems involving converting between units of time
  • use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [for example, length, mass, volume, money] using decimal notation, including scaling

Geometry - properties of shapes

  • identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations
  • know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles
  • draw given angles, and measure them in degrees (°)
  • identify:
  • angles at a point and 1 whole turn (total 360°)
  • angles at a point on a straight line and half a turn (total 180°)
  • other multiples of 90°
  • use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles
  • distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles
  • identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed

Times Tables and Number Facts

You should know all your times tables by now, but if you don'y you really need to practise. If you do, you should be able to use them to work out other more difficult facts (derivitives) from them.I know 4 x 6 =24, so 0.4 x 6 = 2.4.
