St Nicholas Church of EnglandPrimary Academy


Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy


This term we will continue with learning about Properties of Shape, Fractions and Measurement (focusing on length and height)



  • Identify and describe the properties of 2-D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in a vertical line
  • Identify and describe the properties of 3-D shapes, including the number of edges, vertices and faces
  • Identify 2-D shapes on the surface of 3-D shapes [for example, a circle on a cylinder and a triangle on a pyramid]
  • Compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects.


  • Recognise, find, name and write fractions, one third, one quarter, two quarters and three quarters of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity
  • Write simple fractions for example, one half of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of two quarters and one half.

Fraction Learning! - equal and unequal groups!

Measurement - Length and Height

  • Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels
  • Compare and order lengths, mass, volume/capacity and record the results using >, < and =
