What do pupils learn about Geometry in year 4?

According to the National Curriculum in England for Year 4, pupils learn the following topics in geometry:

Properties of Shapes
– **Identify Angles**: Recognise acute and obtuse angles and compare and order angles up to two right angles by size.
– **Compare and Classify Shapes**: Compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes.
– **Symmetry**: Identify lines of symmetry in 2D shapes presented in different orientations.

Position and Direction
– **Describe Movements**: Describe positions on a 2D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant.
– **Plot Points**: Plot specified points and draw sides to complete a given polygon.
– **Describe Movements**: Describe movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right and up/down.

These objectives are designed to develop pupils’ understanding of geometric concepts and spatial reasoning. By the end of Year 4, pupils should have a solid foundation in recognising and working with different shapes and their properties, understanding symmetry, and using coordinates to describe positions and movements.
