Identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations
Know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles
Draw given angles, and measure them in degrees (°)
Identify angles at a point and one whole turn (total 360°)
Identify angles at a point on a straight line and 1/2 a turn (total 180°)
Identify other multiples of 90°
Use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles
Distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles
We will move on to consider decimals and percentages, including their relationship to fractions, learning to:
Read and write decimal numbers as fractions e.g. 0.71 = 71/100, 8.09 = 8 + 9/?
Recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents
Round decimals with two decimal places to the nearest whole number and to one decimal place
Read, write, order and compare numbers with up to three decimal places
Solve problems involving number up to three decimal places
Recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to 'number of parts per hundred', and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal
Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of 1/2, 1/4, 1/5, 2/5, 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25
What can parents do to support learning at home?
As you know, the children have risen to the challenge of improving their times table skills and have been extremely excited to play the new Times Table Rock Stars game online. Competing against the clock to the sound of old-school rock bands such as The Clash and Status Quo, they have to answer as many times table questions as they can in the time limit. The more accurate they are and the quicker they can answer the questions, the better their Rock Star Status, with the ultimate goal of becoming a Rock Hero!
The more they practise, the better they will be become and the more they will earn, meaning that they can customise their avatars with new outfits or the latest high-spec guitar. If you haven't done so already, make sure you ask your child to share this with you at home - the website is compatible with most of your home electronics and your child already has their own personal login.
