Year 5: Geometry: properties of shapes

New Maths Curriculum (2014): Year 5 objectives.

Pupils should become accurate in drawing lines with a ruler to the nearest millimetre, and measuring with a protractor. They use conventional markings for parallel lines and right angles.

Pupils should use the term diagonal and make conjectures about the angles formed by diagonals and sides, and other properties of quadrilaterals, for example using dynamic geometry ICT tools. Pupils should use angle sum facts and other properties to make deductions about missing angles and relate these to missing number problems.
