#### Coordinates

National Curriculum 2014

Year 4

Pupils should be taught to:

• #### describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant

• describe movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right
and up/down
• #### plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon.

Notes and guidance (non-statutory)
Pupils draw a pair of axes in one quadrant, with equal scales and integer labels. They
read, write and use pairs of coordinates, for example (2, 5), including using coordinateplotting
ICT tools.

Year 5

### Geometry – properties of shapes

Pupils should be taught to:

• identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations
• know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles
• draw given angles, and measure them in degrees (°)
• identify:
• angles at a point and 1 whole turn (total 360°)
• angles at a point on a straight line and half a turn (total 180°)
• other multiples of 90°
• use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles
• distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles

### Geometry – position and direction

Pupils should be taught to:

• identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed

Year 6

### Geometry – properties of shapes

Pupils should be taught to:

• draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles
• recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets
• compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
• illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius
• recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles

### Geometry – position and direction

Pupils should be taught to:

• describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all 4 quadrants)
• draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes
