# Year 4 - Maths Expectations

 Number Pupils should be able to: 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 four-digit number Order and compare numbers beyond 1000 Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations Round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000 Solve problems that involve all of the above. Read Roman numerals to 10 Addition (+) and Subtraction (-) Pupils should be able to: Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of column addition and subtraction where appropriate Estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation Solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why. Multiplication (x) and Division (÷) Pupils should be able to: Recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12 Use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together three numbers. Recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations. Multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout . Solve problems including scaling problems and harder correspondence problems. Statistics Pupils should be able to: 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, tables and other graphs. Measurement Pupils should be able to: Convert between different units of measure [e.g. km to m, hour to minute. Measure and calculate the perimeter of rectangles (incl squares) in cm and m. Find the area of rectangles by counting squares Estimate, compare and calculate different measures, including money in £ and p. 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. Shape Pupils should be able to: Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes. Identify acute and obtuse angles and compare and order angles up to two right angles by size. Identify lines of symmetry in 2-D shapes presented in different orientations Complete a simple symmetric figure across a given line of symmetry. Position and Direction Pupils should be able to: Describe positions on a 2-D 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 Fractions Pupils should be able to: Recognise and show families of common equivalent fractions Count up and down in hundredths and understand they are 1/10 of 1/10, and 1/100 of one. Solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions (e.g. ¾ of 24) Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator. Recognise and write decimal equivalents of tenths or hundredths and ¼, ½, ¾ Divide a one- or two-digit number by 10 and 100, identifying 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 places.
