  • Year 4 Mathematics
    • Properties of Shape
      • Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes
      • Identify acute and obtuse angles and compare and order angles up to 2 right angles by size
      • Identify lines of symmetry in 2D shapes presented in different orientations
      • Complete a simple symmetry figure with respect to a specific line of symmetry
    • Measurement
      • Convert between different units of measure
      • Measure and calculate the perimeter of a rectilinear figure in centimetres and metres
      • Find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares
      • Estimate, compare and calculate different measures, including money in pounds and pence
      • Read, write and convert time between analogue and digital 12 and 24-hour clocks
      • Solve problems involving converting from hours to minutes, minutes to seconds, years to months, weeks to days
    • Fractions (including decimals)
      • Recognise and show, using diagrams, families of common equivalent fractions
      • Count up and down in hundredths; recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object by 100 and dividing tenths by 10
      • Solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities, including non-unit fractions where the answer is a whole number
      • Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator
      • Recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundreths
      • Recognise and write decimal equivalents to 1/4; 1/2; 3/4
      • Find the effect of dividing a one- or two-digit number by 10 and 100, identifying the value of the digits in the answer as ones, tenths and hundredths
      • Round decimals with 1 decimal place to the nearest whole number
      • Compare numbers with the same number of decimal places up to 2 decimal places
      • Solve simple measure and money problems involving fractions and decimals to 2 decimal places
    • Multiplication and Division
      • Recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 x 12
      • Use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together 3 numbers
      • Recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations
      • Multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout
      • Solve problems involving multiplying and adding, including using the distributive law to multiply two digit numbers by 1 digit, integer scaling problems and harder correspondence problems such as n objects are connected to m objects
    • Addition and Subtraction
      • Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate
      • Estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation
      • Solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why
    • Number and Place Value
      • Count in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1000
      • Find 1000 more or less than a given number
      • Count backwards through 0 to include negative numbers
      • Recognise the place value of each digit in a four-digit number
      • Order and compare numbers beyond 1000
      • Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations
      • Round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000
      • Solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above and with increasingly large positive numbers
      • Read Roman numerals to 100 and know that over time, the numeral system changed to include the concept of 0 and place value
    • Position and Direction
      • Describe positions on a 2D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant
      • Describe movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right and up/down
      • Plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon
    • Statistics
      • Interpret and present discrete and continuous data using appropriate graphical methods, including bar charts and time graphs
      • Solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in bar charts, pictograms, tables and other graphs
