    • Handling Data (1): 3 averages and range
  • Spring Term
    • Number (2): negative numbers and coordinates
    • Shape (2): triangles and quadrilaterals, constructions
    • Algebra (2): multiples, LCM and HCF, types of numbers
    • Handling Data (2): graphs and questionnaires
  • Summer Term
    • Number (3): fractions (four operations, equivalent fractions)
    • Shape (3): area and perimeter of rectilinear shapes, area of parallelograms, triangles and trapezia
