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 6 sides, by counting squares on a grid.​
Greater Depth Questions to support finding the area of rectilinear shapes with up to 8 sides, by counting squares on a grid. Includes whole squares and half squares.​

Reasoning and Problem Solving
Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Problem Solving)
Developing Calculate the area of squares in a simple repeating pattern when a shape is made larger.
Expected Calculate the number of squares in a repeating pattern when a shape is made larger.
Greater Depth Calculate the number of squares in a repeating pattern when a shape is made larger. Including whole squares and half squares.

Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Reasoning)
Developing Count the area of a rectangle or square to explain whether there are enough squares to complete a shape.
Expected Count the area of a rectilinear shape up to 6 sides to explain whether there are enough squares to complete a shape.
Greater Depth Count the area of a rectilinear shape up to 8 sides to explain whether there are enough squares to complete a pattern. Including whole squares, half squares and squares that cover multiple squares of the pattern.

Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Reasoning)
Developing Explain whether the statement is correct by counting how many squares are missing. Using squares and rectangles.
Expected Explain whether the statement is correct by counting how many squares are missing. Using rectilinear shapes with up to 6 sides.
Greater Depth Explain whether the statement is correct by counting how many squares are missing. Using rectilinear shapes with up to 8 sides including whole squares and half squares.
