“Number patterns and sequences
create and describe number patterns; explore and record patterns related to addition and subtraction, and then patterns of multiples of 2, 5 and 10, explaining the patterns and using them to make predictions; recognise sequences, including odd and even numbers to 30 then beyond; recognise the relationship between halving and doubling”
“Vibration and sound
Pupils should be taught...
e: that sounds are made when objects [for example, strings on musical instruments] vibrate but that vibrations are not always directly visible
f: how to change the pitch and loudness of sounds produced by some vibrating objects [for example, a drum skin, a plucked string]
g: that vibrations from sound sources require a medium [for example, metal, wood, glass, air] through which to travel to the ear.”
“Understand percentage as the number of
parts per 100; recognise the equivalence
of fractions, decimals and percentages;
calculate percentages and use them to
“describe some simple behaviours displayed by organisms in response to their external environment; identify and explain innate and learned behaviour”
