Year 5 Maths End Points


1. Number - Number and Place Value

  • Understand place value in large numbers up to 1,000,000, recognising the value of each digit, comparing and ordering these numbers, and rounding them to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000, or 100,000.

2. Number - Addition and Subtraction

  • Perform addition and subtraction with numbers up to four digits using formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction, demonstrating a firm understanding of carrying and borrowing processes.

3. Number - Multiplication and Division

  • Multiply and divide numbers up to four digits by a one- or two-digit number using a formal written method, including long multiplication for two-digit numbers. Students should also be able to solve problems involving multiplication and division including scaling and area problems.

4. Number - Fractions (including decimals)

  • Identify, name, and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction represented visually or numerically. Compare and order fractions whose denominators are multiples of the same number.
  • Add and subtract fractions with denominators that are the same or multiples of each other, bringing in mixed numbers and improper fractions where relevant.
  • Multiply fractions by whole numbers, starting with simple cases and progressing to more complex problems as understanding develops.

5. Decimals and Percentages

  • Read, write, order, and compare numbers with up to three decimal places. Recognise and use thousandths and relate them to tenths, hundredths, and decimal equivalents of fractions.
  • Begin to introduce the concept of percentages, understanding the connection between percentages, fractions, and decimals through practical problem solving.

6. Measurement

  • Convert between different units of metric measure (for example, kilometre and metre; metre and centimetre; centimetre and millimetre; gram and kilogram; litre and millilitre).
  • Understand and use approximate equivalences between metric units and common imperial units such as inches, pounds, and pints.

7. Geometry - Properties of Shapes

  • Identify 3-D shapes from 2-D representations and know angles are measured in degrees; estimate and compare acute, obtuse, and right angles.
  • Draw given angles and measure them in degrees (°).

8. Geometry - Position and Direction

  • Identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate terminology to describe the movement between positions as accurately as possible.

9. Statistics

  • Solve comparison, sum, and difference problems using information presented in a line graph. Analyse and interpret data, drawing conclusions and predicting trends.

Achieving mastery in these endpoints will prepare Year 5 students well for the progression in curriculum demands as they move into upper Key Stage 2.
