Year 4 Maths
Autumn Term
In the autumn term Year 4 children will:

Count in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1000

Find 1000 more or less than a given number

Count backwards through zero to include negative numbers

Recognise the place value of each digit in a fourdigit number (thousands, hundreds, tens and ones)

Order and compare number beyond 1000

Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations including measures

Round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000

Solve numbers and practical problems that involve all of the above and with the increasingly large positive numbers

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 twostep problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why

Read Roman numerals to 100( i to c) and know that over time, the numeral system changed to include the concept of zero and place value

Recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12x12

Use place value, known and derived facts to multiply mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; multiplying together three numbers

Use place value, known and derived facts to divide mentally, including dividing by 1

Recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations

Multiply twodigit and threedigit numbers by a onedigit number using formal written layout

Solve problems involving multiplying and adding, including using the distributive law to multiply two digit numbers by one digit, integer scaling problems and harder correspondence problems such as 'n' objects are connected to 'm' objects
Spring Term
In the spring term Year 4 children will:

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, tabes and other graphs

Recognise and show, using diagrams, families of common equivalent fractions

Count up and down in hundredths

Recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object y one hundred and dividing tenths by ten

Solve problems involving increasing harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities including nonunit fractions where the answer is a whole number

Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator

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

Recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths and hundredths

Recognise and write decimal equivalents to 1/4, 12, 3/4

Find the effect of dividing a one or twodigit number by 10 and 100, identifying the value of the digits in the answer as ones, tenths and hundredths

Round decimals with one decimal place to the nearest whole number

Compare numbers with the same number of decimal places up to two decimal places

Solve simple measure and money problems involving fractions and decimals to two decimal places

Estimate, compare and calculate different measures, including money in pounds and pence
Summer Term
In the summer term Year 4 children will:

Convert between different units of measure  mass

Estimate, compare and calculate  mass

Convert between different units of measure  volume

Estimate, compare and calculate  volume

Convert between different units of measure

Measure and calculate the perimeter of a rectilinear figure (including squares) in centimetres and metres

Find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting square

Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles

Identify acute and obtuse angles and compare and order angles up to two right angles by size

Identify line of symmetry in 2D shapes presented in different orientations

Complete a simple symmetrical with respect to a specific line of symmetry, including beginning to explore shapes with 2 lines of symmetry

Describe positions in 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
Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)
In June each year, children in year 4 will be entered for the MTC. The purpose of the check is to determine whether children can recall their times tables (up to 12 x 12) fluently and at speed as this skills is considered essential for success in mathematics.
