Mathematics - Year 4

Y4 / Lower KS 2 Topics - Click on quick links below.

All of our year groups cover the complete curriculum with the exception of Maths, English, Computing and Language. Currently, Maths and English are being developed through new activities as well as integrated into existing ones. Aspects of P.E, such as swimming are also not covered.

For optimal user experience please view these tables on a large screen.

Our Year 4 activities are expected to launch mid 2023. The table below will then populate.


National Curriculum Standard Hands-On Education Activity

Ma4/2.1a count in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1,000

Ma4/2.1b find 1,000 more or less than a given number

Ma4/2.1c count backwards through 0 to include negative numbers

Ma4/2.1d recognise the place value of each digit in a four-digit number (1,000s, 100s, 10s and 1s)

Ma4/2.1e order and compare numbers beyond 1,000

Ma4/2.1f identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations

Ma4/2.1g round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1,000

Ma4/2.1h solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above and with increasingly large positive numbers

Ma4/2.1i read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C) and know that over time, the numeral system changed to include the concept of 0 and place value

Ma4/2.2 Addition & Subtraction

Ma4/2.2a add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate

Ma4/2.2b estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation

Ma4/2.2c solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why

Ma4/2.3 Multiplication & Division

Ma4/2.3a recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12

Ma4/2.3b use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together 3 numbers

Ma4/2.3c recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations

Ma4/2.3d multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout

MMa4/2.3e solve problems involving multiplying and adding, including using the distributive law to multiply two digit numbers by 1 digit, integer scaling problems and harder correspondence problems such as n objects are connected to m objects

Ma4/2.4 Fractions (including decimals)

Ma4/2.4a recognise and show, using diagrams, families of common equivalent fractions

Ma4/2.4b count up and down in hundredths; recognise that hundredths arise when dividing an object by a 100 and dividing tenths by 10

Ma4/2.4c solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities, including non-unit fractions where the answer is a whole number

Ma4/2.4d add and subtract fractions with the same denominator

Ma4/2.4e recognise and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundredths

Ma4/2.4f recognise and write decimal equivalents to ¼; ½; ¾

Ma4/2.4g find the effect of dividing a one- or two-digit number by 10 and 100, identifying the value of the digits in the answer as ones, tenths and hundredths

Ma4/2.4h round decimals with 1 decimal place to the nearest whole number

Ma4/2.4i compare numbers with the same number of decimal places up to 2 decimal places

Ma4/2.4j solve simple measure and money problems involving fractions and decimals to 2 decimal places

Ma4/3.1 Measurement

Ma4/3.1a convert between different units of measure

Ma4/3.1b measure and calculate the perimeter of a rectilinear figure (including squares) in centimetres and metres

Ma4/3.1c find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares

Ma4/3.1d estimate, compare and calculate different measures, including money in pounds and pence

Ma4/3.1e read, write and convert time between analogue and digital 12 and 24-hour clocks

Ma4/3.1f solve problems involving converting from hours to minutes, minutes to seconds, years to months, weeks to days

Ma4/3.2 Properties of Shapes

Ma4/3.2a compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes

Ma4/3.2b identify acute and obtuse angles and compare and order angles up to 2 right angles by size

Ma4/3.2c identify lines of symmetry in 2-D shapes presented in different orientations

a4/3.2d complete a simple symmetric figure with respect to a specific line of symmetry

Ma4/3.3 Position & Direction

Ma4/3.3a describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant

Ma4/3.3b describe movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right and up/down

Ma4/3.3c plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon

Ma4/4.1 Statistics

Ma4/4.1a interpret and present discrete and continuous data using appropriate graphical methods, including bar charts and time graphs

Ma4/4.1b solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in bar charts, pictograms, tables and other graphs
