  • I can solve problems with addition and subtraction using concrete objects and pictorial representations, including those involving numbers, quantities and measures.
  • I can solve problems with addition and subtraction applying my increasing knowledge of mental and written methods.
  • I can recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10x tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.
  • I can calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division within the multiplication tables and write them using the multiplication, division and equals signs.
  • I can solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in context.
  • I can show that addition of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and subtraction of one number from another cannot.
  • I can show that multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of one number by another cannot.

Fractions

  • I recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/3, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity.
  • I can write simple fractions.
  • I recognise the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2.

Measurement

  • I can compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using > < and =.
  • I can choose and use standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction in m and cm using rulers.
  • I can choose and use standard units to estimate and measure mass in kg and g using scales.
  • I can choose and use standard units to estimate and measure temperature in ºC using thermometers.
  • I can choose and use standard units to estimate and measure capacity in l and ml using measuring vessels.
  • I recognise and use symbols for £ and p and combine amounts to make a particular value.
  • I can find different combinations of coins that equal the same amount of money.
  • I can tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter to/past and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times.
  • I can compare and sequence intervals of time.
  • I know the number of minutes in an hour.
  • I know the number of hours in a day.
  • I can solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and ssubtraction of money of the same units, including giving change.

Geometry – properties of shapes

  • I can compare and sort common 2D shapes and everyday objects.
  • I can compare and sort common 3D shapes and everyday objects.
  • I can identify and describe the properties of 2D shapes, including the number of sides and line of symmetry in a vertical line.
  • I can identify and describe the properties of 3D shapes including the number of edges, vertices and faces.
  • I can identify 2D shapes on the surface of 3D shapes.

Geometry – position and direction

  • I can order and arrange combinations of mathematical objects in patterns and sequences.
  • I can use mathematical vocabulary to describe position, direction and movement (including movement in a straight line and distinguishing between rotation as a turn and in terms of right angles for quarter, half and three-quarter turns (clockwise and anti clockwise).
