Drawing, measuring, comparing and finding angles

  • Year group: Year 5
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Geometry
  • Duration: 1.5 weeks
  • Keystage: KS2
  • Age Range: 9 to 10 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 5 - 6a

In this chapter, pupils reason and solve problems based on their understanding of angle size.

At this stage, pupils know that angles are measured in degrees and are able to draw and measure them. They develop accuracy when drawing lines with a ruler to the nearest millimetre and when measuring with a protractor. They use conventional markings for parallel lines and right angles.

Pupils make deductions about missing angles using angle sum facts and other properties, and relate these to missing number problems. In solving problems, pupils estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles. They also identify angles at a point in one whole turn (360°), angles at a point on a straight line or in a half-turn (180°) and other multiples of 90°.

Additionally, pupils use their knowledge of the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles. They distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles.

Pupils start to use the term “diagonal” and make conjectures about the angles formed between sides, as well as between diagonals, parallel sides and other properties of quadrilaterals. They may use dynamic, geometry-focused ICT tools to support this.

Mathematics Mastery

Draw, measure, compare and find angles

Developing pupils’ problem solving skills is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

This task sheet focuses on drawing, measuring, comparing and finding angles and can be used in two ways. 1. To support parents with their child(ren)’s learning at home, helping them to develop their mathematical understanding beyond the classroom environment. 2. For teachers to use this resource as a basis for a classroom activity, helping pupils to practise and consolidate their understanding.

• Each task is accompanied by guidance to support parents with concepts and methods they may be less familiar with
• For the classroom, you can introduce this as an independent task or in mixed attainment pairs to encourage mathematical discussion

Draw, measure, compare and find angles

Deepening pupils’ understanding of key mathematical ideas is a core element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Our Key Constructs highlight the essential mathematical concepts all pupils are expected to grasp within each year group, with accompanying guidance for assessing pupil progress.

Our Key Constructs are closely aligned to the National Curriculum’s objectives. We know these can be tricky to evidence, so we’ve included an example task for each concept, as well as ideas to support slower-graspers and depth tasks to challenge higher-attaining pupils.

• Pupils should work through the tasks independently
• Teachers should incorporate the CPA approach to support pupils’ learning
• Opportunities for depth and scaffolding are built into each task

Investigating Angles

These worksheets can be used in a single carousel/round robin-style lesson or separately. The left half of each is an investigation of an angle rule and the right half has missing angle problems related to that rule. The missing angle problems increase in difficulty.
I divided my class into colour groups based on ability level to investigate each rule. I used envoys and 'rainbow groups' (1 person from each colour group) to share what each pupil had learnt, before doing a 4-question test at the end of the lesson.
