Year 4 Block B – Securing number facts, understanding shape
The focuses of mathematics learning within this block are:
 Sums and differences of multiples of 10, 100, 1000
 Tables to 10 × 10; multiples
 Doubles of 2digit numbers and multiples of 10, 100; corresponding halves
 Solving one and twostep word problems involving numbers, money or measures
 Patterns, relationships and properties of numbers and shapes
 Explaining methods and reasoning, orally and on paper, using words diagrams and symbols
 Properties of polygons, including line symmetry
 Visualising 3D and 2D shapes
 Nets of common solids
The objectives for the block are listed in the table – the right hand column indicates how the objectives might be addressed in the units
Objectives 
Unit 1 
Unit 2 
Unit 3 
Identify and use patterns, relationships and properties of numbers or shapes; investigate a statement involving numbers and test it with examples




Solve onestep and twostep problems involving numbers, money or measures, including time; choose and carry out appropriate calculations, using calculator methods where appropriate




Use knowledge of rounding, number operations and inverses to estimate and check calculations




Report solutions to puzzles and problems, giving explanations and reasoning orally and in writing, using diagrams and symbols




Use knowledge of addition and subtraction facts and place value to derive sums and differences of pairs of multiples of 10, 100 or 1000




Identify the doubles of twodigit numbers; use these to calculate doubles of multiples of 10 and 100 and derive the corresponding halves




Derive and recall multiplication facts up to 10 × 10, the corresponding division facts and multiples of numbers to 10 up to the tenth multiple 



Draw polygons and classify them by identifying their properties, including their line symmetry




Visualise 3D objects from 2D drawings; make nets of common solids
