Year 6 Maths
Autumn Term
In the autumn term Year 6 children will:

Read, write, order and compare numbers up 10 000 000 and determine the value of each digit

Round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy

solve number and practical problems involving ordering and comparing numbers, round using negative numbers and calculate intervals across zero

Multiply multidigit numbers up to 4 digits by a twodigit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication

Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a twodigit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication

Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a twodigit whole number using the formal written methods of long and short division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions or by rounding as appropriate for the context

Perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers

Use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denominations

Compare and order fractions, including fractions >1

Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions

Use estimation to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of problem, a appropriate degree of accuracy

Identify common factors, common multiplies and prime numbers

Use knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the four operations

Multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form

Divide proper fractions by whole numbers

Associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents

Identify the value of each digit in numbers given to thee decimal places

Multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to three decimal places

Solve problems which require answers to be rounded to specified degrees of accuracy

Recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts

Solve problems involving the calculation of percentages and the use of percentages for comparison

Solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure, using decimal notation up to three decimal places where appropriate

Use, read, write and convert between standard units, using decimal notation up to three decimal palaces

Solve addition and subtraction multistep problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why

Solve problems involving. addition, subtraction, multiplication and division

Multiply onedigit numbers with up to two decimal places by whole numbers

Use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places
Spring Term
In the spring term Year 6 children will:

Recognise that shapes with the same areas ca have different perimeters and vice versa

Recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes

Use simple formulae

Generate and describe linear number sequences

Express missing number problems algebraically

Find pairs of numbers that satisfy an equation with two unknowns

Enumerate possibilities of combinations of two variables

Calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles

Calculate, estimate and compare volume of cubes and cuboids using standard units

Solve problems involving the relative sizes of two quantities where missing values can be found by using inter multiplication and division facts

Solve problems involving similar shapes where the scale factor is known or can be found

Solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples

Find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals and regular polygons

Recognise angles where they meet at a point are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles

Convert between miles and kilometres

Draw 2D shapes using given dimensions and angles

Recognise, describe and build simple 3D shapes, including making nets

Compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes

Illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius

Describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants)

Draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflects them in the axis

Interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use them to solve problems

Calculate and interpret the mean as an average

Use negative numbers in context, and calculate intervals across zero
