Strand Ref Know how to e.g.
FRACTIONS 5F2a

Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other; write mathematical statements >1 as a mixed number [eg: ⅖ + ⅘ = 1 ⅕]

  5F2b

Identify name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths

  5F3

Compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number

  5F4

Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number

  5F5

Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams

  5F6a

Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [eg: 0.71 = 71 ⁄ 100]

  5F6b

Recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents

  5F7

Round decimals with two decimal places to the nearest whole number and to one decimal place

  5F8

Read, write, order and compare numbers with up to three decimal places

  5F10

Solve problems involving numbers up to three decimal places

  5F11

Recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to 'number of parts per hundred'; write percentages as a fraction with denominator hundred, and as a decimal.

  5F12

Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of ½ , ¼ , ⅕ , ⅖ , ⅘ and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25



Strand Ref Know how to e.g.
MEASUREMENT 5M4

Solve problems involving converting between units of time.

  5M5

Convert between different units of metric measure [eg: kilometre and metre; centimetre and metre; centimetre and millimetre; gram and kilogram; litre and millilitre]

  5M6

Understand and use approximate equivalences between metric units and common imperial units such as inches, pounds and pints

  5M7a

Measure and calculate the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes in centimetres and metres

  5M8

Estimate volume [eg: using 1cm³ blocks to build cuboids (including cubes)] and capacity [eg:using water]

  5M9a Use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [money] using decimal notation,including scaling
  5M9b

Use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [eg: length] using decimal notation,including scaling

  5M9c

Use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [eg: mass] using decimal notation, including scaling.

  5M9d

Use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [eg: volume] using decimal notation, including scaling

GEOMETRY properties of shapes 5G2a

Use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles

  5G2b

Distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles

  5G3b

Identify 3-D shapes including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations

  5G4a

Know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles

  5G4b

Identify:

  • angles at a point and one whole turn (total 360°)
  • angles at a point on a straight line and ½ a turn (total 180°)
  • other multiples of 90°
