In lower Key Stage 2, children will become increasingly fluent with whole numbers and the four operations, including number facts and the concept of place value. This should ensure that pupils develop efficient written and mental methods and perform calculations accurately with increasingly large whole numbers.
They will also continue to develop their ability to solve a range of problems, including with simple fractions and decimal place value. Children draw shapes with increasing accuracy and develop mathematical reasoning so they can analyse shapes, their properties and confidently describe the relationships between them. We will ensure that they can use measuring instruments with accuracy and make connections between measure and number.
By the end of year 4, pupils should have memorised their multiplication tables up to and including the 12 multiplication table and show precision and fluency in their work.
Pupils should read and spell mathematical vocabulary correctly and confidently, using their growing word reading knowledge and their knowledge of spelling.
