Recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and solve missing number problems.

Solve problems involving numbers, quantities and measures.

Measure: length and mass

Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm) and mass (kg/g) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers and scales.

Compare and order length and mass and record the results using >, < and =.

Multiplication and division

Recall and use x and ÷ facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, including recognising odd and even numbers.

Calculate mathematical statements for x and ÷ within multiplication times tables and write them using the x, ÷ and =.

Solve problems involving x and ÷, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods and x and ÷ facts, including problem in contexts.

Show that the multiplication of two numbers can be done in any order and division of one number by another cannot.
