^ knows the 1X, 2X, 5X tables moderately well.
^ knows the 1X, 2X moderately well.
^ needs to develop ~ knowledge of basic multiplication facts, and be able to recall these more accurately and rapidly.
^ understood and could use the idea of time zones across the world
^ is able to say what each digit in a number means.
^ is able to round numbers to the nearest ten and hundred.
^ needs more practice with developing the ability to approximate in order to estimate results of calculations.
^ still needs to develop familiarity with negative numbers.
^ needs to refine ~ own mental strategies for calculating in addition and subtraction to 100.
^ can easily use pencil and paper methods fluently to add and subtract 2 and 3 digit numbers.
^ can find 1/2, 1/4, 1/3, 1/5, 3/4, 2/3 1/10 of numbers to 100 where the fractions work out as whole numbers.
^ can understand the concept of remainders in division and now needs to consolidate this skill by being able to convert these easily into decimals.
^ can complete simple equations by filling in the missing number.
^ can recognise and devise simple functions.
^ can easily select the appropriate operation to solve a simple word problem.

^ can identify the decimal point in the calculator display.
^ can read, write and order amounts of money (pounds and pence).
^ can understand place value in relation to money.
^ can understand and use the language of probability.
^ can express times both in analogue form (25 to 7) and in digital form (6.35).
^ can understand and use am and pm to denote before noon and after noon.
^ understands that angle is a measure of turn and knows and has used degrees as units of angle.
^ is comfortable working with time
^ knows that 1000 ml is equal to one litre.
^ knows that 500ml is half a litre, 250 ml = ¼ litre, 100 ml = 1/10 litre.
^ knows and can use the litre and millilitre as units of capacity.
^ has a fair understanding of shape as well as rotational and reflective symmetry.
^ has knowledge of the properties of shapes.

^ can create designs and models using reflective symmetry.
^ knows that the square centimetre (sq cm) is a standard unit of area.
^ knows that the perimeter of a shape is the distance around its outside.
^ can read the weight information on commercial packaging and understand that gross weight is the total including packaging, while net weight refers to contents of the package only
^ knows that 500g is half a kilogram, that 250g is one quarter of a kilogram, and that 100g is one tenth of a kilogram.
^ has worked with the kilogram (kg) and gram (g) as units of mass.
