Term 1 and 2 Maths in Year 6

During terms 1 and 2, we will primarily focus on the following areas of Maths:

  • Number and Place Value
  • The Four Operations (+ - x /)
  • Fractions
  • Geometry - position and direction


This year, we will be spending longer on different mathematical concepts and developing our reasoning and problem solving skills throughout our learning.


What can parents do to support learning at home?

  • Ensure children are secure with their times table knowledge up to 12x12. This supports understanding in so many areas of Maths.
  • Help children to secure their written methods of calculation (please follow the schools calculation policy for this).
  • Use directions in a real-life environment - when you are travelling by car, using GPS to get to a location, reading road signs and maps.
  • Play a game of battles ships to help with the reading of co-ordinates.
