• Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number.

• Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions.

• Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams.

• Multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form.

• Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of, 1/2, 1/4, 1/5, 2/5, 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25.

• Divide proper fractions by whole numbers.

• Solve problems involving the relative sizes of two quantities where missing values can be found by using integer multiplication and division facts.

• Solve problems involving the calculation of percentages and the use of percentages for comparison.

• Convert between different units of metric measure.

• 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.

Science

These are the outcomes children are expected to meet:

• Plan enquiries, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary.
• Take measurements, using a range of scientific equipment, with increasing accuracy and precision.
• Record data and results of increasing complexity using scientific diagrams and labels, classification keys, tables, bar and line graphs, and models.
• Use test results to make predictions to set up further comparative and fair tests.
• Present findings in written form, displays and other presentations.
• Use simple models to describe scientific ideas, identifying scientific evidence that has been used to support or refute ideas or arguments.
