Year 4 Maths Endpoints


Place Value

  • Recognise the Place Value in Four-Digit Numbers: Pupils should be able to recognise and represent four-digit numbers using numerals and words, understanding the value of each digit.
  • Order and Compare Numbers: Students should be able to order and compare numbers beyond 1,000 up to at least 10,000.

Addition and Subtraction

  • Add and Subtract Numbers: Pupils need to be fluent in adding and subtracting numbers with up to four digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction.
  • Solve Problems: Students should apply their addition and subtraction skills to solve problems, including those with unknowns and contexts, such as measures and money.

Multiplication and Division

  • Multiply and Divide: Mastery of multiplication and division facts up to 12 × 12 is expected. Pupils should use their knowledge of place value and number facts to multiply and divide mentally, including multiplying three numbers together.
  • Factor and Multiple Understanding: Students should be able to recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations.


  • Recognise and Write Fractions: Pupils should understand and write decimal equivalents of any number of tenths or hundredths. Additionally, they must recognise and show families of common equivalent fractions.
  • Add and Subtract Fractions: Capability to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator.


  • Understand and Use Perimeter and Area: Pupils should calculate the perimeter of a rectilinear figure (including squares) in centimetres and metres. They also need to find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares.


  • Properties of Shapes: Recognition of types of triangles (isosceles, equilateral, scalene) and quadrilaterals (parallelogram, rhombus, trapezium). Understanding of acute and obtuse angles and comparing them.
  • Position and Direction: Pupils should describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant.


  • Interpret Data: Students must be fluent in presenting discrete and continuous data using appropriate graphical methods, including bar charts and time graphs. Moreover, they should solve comparison, sum, and difference problems using information presented in bar charts, pictograms, tables, and other diagrams.

Achievement of these endpoints will ensure Year 4 pupils have a solid mathematical foundation as per the standards of the 2014 National Curriculum in England.
