National Curriculum Objectives
Mathematics Y3:Add and subtract numbers with up to three digits, using formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction.
Mathematics Y3:Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables
Mathematics Y3:Write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division using the multiplication tables that they know, including for two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods
Mathematics Y3:Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole
Mathematics Y3:Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators

Mathematics Y4:Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate
Mathematics Y4:Solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which
operations and methods to use and why.
Mathematics Y4:Multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout
solve problems involving increasingly harder fractions to calculate quantities, and fractions to divide quantities, including non-unit fractions where the answer is a whole number
Mathematics Y4:Pupils continue to practise adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator, to become fluent through a variety of increasingly complex problems beyond one whole.

Mathematics Y5:Add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods (columnar addition and subtraction)
Mathematics Y5:Solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.
Mathematics Y5:Multiply numbers up to 4 digits by a one- or two-digit number using a formal written method, including long multiplication for two-digit numbers
Mathematics Y5:Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a one-digit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders appropriately for the context
Mathematics Y5:Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements
Mathematics Y5:Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number

Mathematics Y6:Multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication
Mathematics Y6:Solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why
Mathematics Y6:Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions
Mathematics Y6:Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate, interpreting remainders according to the context
Mathematics Y6:Use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination​​​
