Year 6 Maths
Support your child as they gain new maths skills, revise earlier topics and prepare for KS2 Maths SATs with hundreds of Year 6 maths worksheets.
You’ll find resources to help your child with all the core topics, including solving three-step problems using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, working with decimals, fractions and percentages, calculating perimeter and area, converting units of measurement and interpreting tables, bar charts and line graphs. You can also browse our KS2 Maths SATs papers and follow our KS2 Maths SATs Learning Journey.
Make numbers part of everyday life with the Year 6 Maths Booster pack. One worksheet a day offers practice and revision, and the varied activities (spotting mystery shapes, solving puzzles and surveying family and friends to find out what the most popular Olympic sport is) will keep kids' brains active and engaged.
The Year 6 Maths Booster pack includes:
- Prime numbers
- Proportion, mode, range, median, mean
- Measurements and geometry
- Positive and negative numbers
The Year 6 Maths Learning Journey programme comprises 40 worksheets. Work through these and your child will cover all the key topics in the curriculum for their school year.
By following the programme, which closely mirrors what your child is being taught in school, you’ll quickly be able to spot any topics that your child hasn't fully grasped and reinforce learning that is happening in the classroom at home. Your child will feel more confident in their own abilities and you’ll know you are giving your child the very best chance of succeeding in school.
Want to support your child's maths learning at home? Our Y6 Maths Progress checks, prepared by a KS2 teacher, will help you identify any areas your child is finding tricky so you can revise them together.
Each term’s maths test consists of 20 questions and a total of 20 marks. The first 5 questions are mental maths questions (allow your child 10 seconds for each one) and the next 15 are written questions (allow your child as much time as they like to do these questions).
