National Curriculum Objectives

Mathematics Year 4: (4M7b) Find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares

Differentiation:
Varied Fluency
Developing Questions to support finding the area of squares and rectangles by counting squares.
Expected Questions to support finding the area of rectilinear shapes with up to 8 sides, by counting squares on a grid.
Greater Depth Questions to support finding the area of complex rectilinear shapes with up to 12 sides, by counting squares on a grid. Includes whole squares and half squares, and squares with a value greater than 1cm².

Reasoning and Problem Solving
Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Problem Solving)
Developing Calculate the number of squares in a repeating pattern when a shape is made larger. 2 colour pattern up to 12 squares.
Expected Calculate the number of squares in a repeating pattern when a shape is made larger. 2 colour pattern up to 20 squares.
Greater Depth Calculate the number of squares in a repeating pattern when a shape is made larger. 2 colour pattern up to 30 squares.

Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Problem Solving)
Developing Compare a rectangular pattern where each square is 1m² with a known number of paving slabs. Up to 12 squares.
Expected Compare a rectilinear pattern (with up to 8 sides) where each square is 1m² with a known number of paving slabs. Up to 20 squares.
Greater Depth Compare a rectilinear pattern (with up to 12 sides) where each square is 2m² with a known quantity of garden turf. Up to 30 squares.

Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Reasoning)
Developing Explain whether the statement is correct by counting how many squares are missing. Using squares and rectangles with up to 12 squares.
Expected Explain whether the statement is correct by working out how many squares are missing from the information provided. Using squares and rectangles with up to 20 squares.
Greater Depth Explain whether the statement is correct by working out how many squares are missing from the information provided. Using composite shapes with up to 30 squares.

  1. On the powerpoint slide where you have to continue the pattern. If you follow the instructions, continuing the pattern up, you arrive at a different solution to the one on the answer slide because the creator has continued the pattern down. Also, I believe the shapes (on the VF sheets) would photocopy clearer and easier for the children, if they were shaded.

  2. Do you have teaching slides to go with these resources?

    • Hi, we don’t have a teaching PowerPoint for this step yet. It was created before we started adding them in. Once we finish the Summer blocks for all year groups, we will go back and start adding Varied Fluency and Teaching PowerPoints for Autumn and Spring blocks (in order).
