Year 4 Summer term overview

 

In Maths, we are moving on to measure, geometry and statistics. Children will be calculating the area and perimeter of shapes, converting between different units of measure and solving problems. Children will also be learning how to identify and compare different types of angles and how to identify lines of symmetry within shapes. We will also be looking at translating shapes and describing their movements between different positions. Children will also develop their statistical thinking by continuing to read and interpret data from different sources. Please continue to encourage your child to practise their time telling skills. We will continue to work on our reasoning and problem solving skills too.

 

Year 4 summer Term Objectives

Measures: Perimeter and Length

  • Convert between different units of measure [for example, kilometre to metre; hour to minute].
  • Measure and calculate the perimeter of a rectilinear figure (including squares) in centimetres and metres.

    Geometry: Angles

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

    Geometry: Shape and symmetry

  • Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes.
  • Complete a simple symmetric figure with respect to a specific line of symmetry.  

    Geometry- Position and Direction

  • 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.  

    Statistics

  • 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.  

Perimeter and Area

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

  • Convert between different units of measure [for example, kilometre to metre; hour to minute].
  • Find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares.

Year 4 Maths Objectives
