# Year 5 Geometry Programme of Study

Accuracy is a key word in the new Programme of Study for Geometry in Year 5. Children will be expected to draw lines accurately, to the nearest millimetre.

Measuring angle is also an important part of this year’s work as well as calculating angles from given information.

In full the new Programme of Study is:

**Properties of shapes**

Pupils should be taught to:

• identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations

• know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles

• draw given angles, and measure them in degrees

• identify:

angles at a point and one whole turn (total 360 degrees)

angles at a point on a straight line and ½ a turn (total 180 degrees)

other multiples of 90 degrees

• use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles

• distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles.

**Position and direction**

Pupils should be taught to:

• identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed.

**What’s new and comments**

Children will be expected to draw lines accurately, to the nearest millimetre and measure with a protractor.
