Term

What are we learning


1

Basic Numeracy
Numerical Skills
Order of Operations
Basic Rules of Algebra
Factors and Multiples
Expand and Factorise

 Understand and use place value for decimals. Calculations with negative numbers. Estimate calculations by rounding.
 Solve calculations requiring understanding of BIDMAS (know that the inverse of squaring is ‘square rooting’).
 Use the concepts and vocabulary of prime numbers, factors (or divisors), multiples, common factors, common multiples, highest common factor, lowest common multiple.
 Simplify and manipulate algebraic expressions to maintain equivalence by multiplying a single term over a bracket or by taking out common factors.

2

Addition and Subtraction
Perimeter
Multiplication and Division
Area of Rectangles, Parallelograms and Triangles

 Use Addition and Subtraction, including formal written methods, applied to integers, decimals.
 Calculate and solve problems involving perimeters of rectangles and compound shapes (not circles).
 Use Multiplication and Division, including formal written methods, applied to integers & decimals.
 Derive and apply formulae to calculate and solve problems involving area of triangles, rectangles and parallelograms.

3

Fraction Manipulation
Adding and Subtracting Fractions
Comparing and Ordering Fractions
Fractions of Amounts

 Express one quantity as a fraction of another, where the fraction is less than 1 and greater than 1.
 Use addition and subtraction, including formal written methods, applied to proper and improper fractions, and mixed numbers.
 Compare and order fractions by creating common denominators.

4

Substitution
Angles
Polygons

 Substitute into simple formulae (including negative numbers).
 Apply the properties of angles at a point, angles at a point on a straight line, angles in polygons.
 Derive, describe and illustrate properties of triangles, quadrilaterals and other plane figures [for example, equal lengths and angles] using appropriate language and technologies

5

Symmetry and Reflection
Coordinates

 Describe, sketch and draw regular polygons, and other polygons that are reflectively and rotationally symmetric.
 Read and plot coordinates in all 4 four quadrants

6

Mean
Twoway Tables and Venn Diagrams

 Describe, interpret and compare observed distributions of a single variable through the use of the mean.
 Enumerate sets and unions/intersections of sets systematically, using tables, grids and Venn diagrams
