Policies and Resources

Welcome to our maths page.  We will upload information about the topics we are working on plus links to lots of websites that we use in class and that can help you develop your maths.

 

Place Value games - it is important to know the value of each digit in any given number.  In year 6, children should be able to read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10 000 000 and determine the value of each digit

These games will help practise this skill.

Mental Maths skills

 Percentages games

 Demolition divison game

This week, in our mental maths minute (or two!) we will be focusing on measuring accurately, converting measures and reading a range of different scales.  These websites will help develop this skill at home.

Year 6 Maths Games - a range of different activities.  Some can be quite tricky.

 

Measures

A super measuring activity where you need to measure and weigh parcels and then read a table to add the correct postage. It uses metric measures.

Understanding Measures

Do you have problems understanding different measures? This maths booster activity can help you learn different units of metric measurement. You need to spell the names of the measures in full rather than the shortened versions.

Estimating

Should you use a metre or kilometre to measure a house? If you are not sure which unit of measurement to use try Ed's quiz and see if it helps.

 Scales Reader

Can you read scales? Then try this scales reader which includes weights in grams and kilograms.

Balance Scales This simple to use site has balance scales which shows how things used to be weighed but it uses grams.

Mathematical Activities for Year 6

Challenging mental maths activities and puzzles for 11 year olds. Sharpen up your skills for SATs but some activities are against the clock so you will need to think fast!
