---|---|---|---|

Mental | I know the multiplication tables : 2× to 12× I can halve whole numbers (eg 126,23) I can use a calculator when appropriate and know that for example 4.50 is £4.50 in the context of money I can use addition and subtraction facts for pairs of multiples to 1000(eg 300 + 700 = 1000) I can add/subtract four/five digit numbers I can multiply/divide a four/five digit number by a single digit (with no remainders) |
I know the division facts for the multiplication tables: 2× to 12× I can use my multiplication tables knowledge to calculate with multiples of 10 (eg 30×7, 180 6) I know complements of 1000 (eg 1000 – 350 = 650) I can add/subtract four/five digit numbers including decimals I can divide a four/five digit number by a single digit where there is a remainder I can halve decimals |
I can use a range of efficient mental methods of computations with the four operations I can multiply a decimal to 1 dp by a single digit (eg 36.2×8 =) I can multiply a two digit number by a two digit number (TU×TU) I can add and subtract decimals to two places I can use efficient methods of addition and subtraction and of short multiplication and division |

I can complete a shape (eg rectangle) which has two sides drawn at an oblique angle on a grid I can translate a shape horizontally and vertically |
I am beginning to rotate a shape about its centre or vertex |

Measures | I know and can use the units of measure in length, mass, capacity. I can use decimal notation (eg 3.06m =3m 6cm) I can use timetables and calendars I can find the perimeter of simple shapes (eg squares/rectangles) I can use the 24 hour clock |
I can draw and measure acute angles I can calculate angles along a straight line I can use number of squares in a row×number of rows to find the area of a rectangle I can calculate time durations that go over the half hour |
I can measure accurately in mm I can draw and measure acute/obtuse angles I can begin to find the area of compound shapes I can find the area of a shape that can be divided into small squares (eg centimetre squares) by counting the squares/ part squares. |

Data:Specifying the problem. Planning and collecting | I can gather data to answer a question using a tally chart and frequency (totals) table |
I can use a Venn /Carroll diagram using more than one criterion (eg right angles and equal sides) |
I can construct a bar chart (eg scale of 2) and pictogram (eg one symbol represents 10) I can decide the best way to present my data (bar chart, Venn diagram, pictogram) |
