# Year 4 maths

By Year 4 your child is expected to have a good grasp of the basic maths skills, such as times tables to ten, the properties of 2D and 3D shapes, estimating, measuring and recording results. Other topics like fractions, decimals, mental maths and geometry will all be more challenging in Year 4. Times tables are also formally tested in the Multiplication Tables Check in the summer term.

Help your child build on what they’re learning at school or tackle tricky maths homework with hundreds of Year 4 maths worksheets and discover great activities to help them understand why maths is important in real-life situations.
