In this chapter, pupils learn about the parts of a circle.

Pupils illustrate and name the parts of a circle, including its radius, diameter and circumference, and know that the diameter is twice the length of the radius. This knowledge is fundamental in preparing them to reason about the properties of circles at KS3, when they will explore the relationship between the length of the radius and the circumference.
