Maths in Year 6
In Year 6, we follow the White Rose Maths Small Steps as our basis to our maths work. This is broken down into small steps of learning and is based on fluency, reasoning and problem solving.
Each day, the children carry out extra arithmetic lessons, focusing on key arithmetic skills which they have learnt over their time in Year 6.
The topics which we will be teaching the children in Year 6 are as follows:
A key part of mathematical learning in Year 6 is based around fractions, decimals and percentages. To be successful in this area, children need to be confident with their recall of their times tables and division facts up to 12 x 12. Therefore, we encourage the children to aim to use Times Table Rockstars regularly to continue to increase the accuracy and recall speed of these. Please could parents and carers support and encourage their children at home with learning these.
