Ensure pupils extend their understanding of the number system and place value to include larger integers.
Develop the connections which pupils make between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio.
Develop pupils’ ability to solve a wider range of problems, including increasingly complex properties of numbers and arithmetic, problems demanding efficient written and mental methods of calculation.
Introduce the language of algebra as a means for solving a variety of problems.
Consolidate and extend knowledge developed in geometry and measurement; ensure that pupils classify shapes with increasingly complex geometric properties and that they learn the vocabulary needed to describe them.
Ensure pupils are fluent in written methods for all four operations, including long multiplication and division, and in working with fractions, decimals and percentages.
Ensure that pupils read, spell and pronounce mathematical vocabulary correctly.
