## Year 5 – areas of study

**Number and place value** – students should be taught to:

- Read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1,000,000 and determine the value of each digit
- Count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1,000,000
- Interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through 0
- Round any number up to 1,000,000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000
- Solve number problems and practical problems that involve all of the above
- Read Roman numerals to 1,000 (M) and recognise years written in Roman numerals

**Number – addition and subtraction **– students should be taught to:

- Add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods (columnar addition and subtraction)
- Add and subtract numbers mentally with increasingly large numbers
- Use rounding to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, levels of accuracy
- Solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why

**Number – multiplication and division **– students should be taught to:

- Identify multiples and factors, including finding all factor pairs of a number, and common factors of 2 numbers
- Know and use the vocabulary of prime numbers, prime factors and composite (non-prime) numbers
- Establish whether a number up to 100 is prime and recall prime numbers up to 19
- Multiply numbers up to 4 digits by a one- or two-digit number using a formal written method, including long multiplication for two-digit numbers
- Multiply and divide numbers mentally, drawing upon known facts
- Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a one-digit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders appropriately for the context
- Multiply and divide whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1,000
- Recognise and use square numbers and cube numbers, and the notation for squared (²) and cubed (³)
- Solve problems involving multiplication and division, including using their knowledge of factors and multiples, squares and cubes
- Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and a combination of these, including understanding the meaning of the equals sign
- Solve problems involving multiplication and division, including scaling by simple fractions and problems involving simple rates

**Number – fractions (including decimals and percentages) **– students should be taught to:

- Compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number
- Identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths
- Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number (for example, 2/5+ 4/5 = 6/5 = 1 1/5)
- Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, and denominators that are multiples of the same number
- Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams
- Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = 71/100]
- Recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths and decimal equivalents
- Round decimals with 2 decimal places to the nearest whole number and to 1 decimal place
- Read, write, order and compare numbers with up to 3 decimal places
- Solve problems involving number up to 3 decimal places
- Recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to ‘number of parts per 100’, and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal fraction
- Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of ½, 1/4, 1/5, 2/5, 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25

**Measurement** – students should be taught to:

- Convert between different units of metric measure (for example, kilometre and metre; centimetre and metre; centimetre and millimetre; gram and kilogram; litre and millilitre)
- Understand and use approximate equivalences between metric units and common imperial units such as inches, pounds and pints
- Measure and calculate the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes in centimetres and metres
- Calculate and compare the area of rectangles (including squares), including using standard units, square centimetres (cm²) and square metres (m²), and estimate the area of irregular shapes
- Estimate volume (for example, using 1 cm³ blocks to build cuboids (including cubes)) and capacity (for example, using water)
- Solve problems involving converting between units of time
- Use all four operations to solve problems involving measure (for example, length, mass, volume, money) using decimal notation, including scaling

**Geometry – properties of shape-** students should be taught to:

- 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 1 whole turn (total 360°)
- Identify angles at a point on a straight line and half 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

**Geometry – position and direction** – students should be taught to:

- Identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed

**Statistics** – students should be taught to:

- Solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in a line graph
- Complete, read and interpret information in tables, including timetables
