The National Curriculum Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2

- read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 10 000 000; interpret negative numbers; round any number with accuracy; solve number problems and practical problems; multiply numbers up to 4 digits by two-digit numbers using the written method of long multiplication; divide numbers up 4 digitis by two-digit numbers using the written method of long and short division; identify common factors, multiples and prime numbers; solve multi-step problems; use common fractions to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination; compare and order fractions; add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions; identify the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places; multiply and divide numbers by 10,100 and 1000; multiply numbers up to two decimal places by whole numbers; recall and use equivalences between fractions, decimals and percentages.

Ratio and Proportion - solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping; solve problems involving similiar shapes; solve problems involving the calculation of percentages; solve problems involving the size of two quantities.

Algebra - use simple formulae; generate and describe linear number sequences; express missing number problems algebraically; find pairs of numbers that satisfy an equation with two unknowns.

Measurement - solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure using decimal notation up to 3 decimal places; convert measurements of length, mass, volume and time; convert between miles and kilometres; recognise that shapes with the same area have different perimeters; recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes; calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles; calculate, estimate and compare volumes of cubes and cuboids using standard units.

Geometry - draw 2D shapes using given dimensions and angles; recognise, describe and build simple 3D shapes; compare and classify geometric shapes and find unknown angles; illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference; recognise angles where they meet at a point and find missing angles; describe positions on the full coordinate grid; draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane and reflect them on the axes.

Statistics - interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs; calculate and interpret mean as an average.

The children will be engaged in writing activities across both fiction and non-fiction genres. They will also enhance their progress in this respect through focussed grammar lessons. Most children will be asked to select a suitable reading book, either from school or home, and this needs to be brought to school everyday for use during silent reading sessions. They will be strongly encouraged to read a range of genre, rather than just fiction. This will enhance their reading confidence and dexterity in preparation for Key Stage 2 SATs.
