Year 6 Maths

Welcome to the Year 6 Maths page!

Here you will find a range of activities for the children to do at home to consolidate skills we have been learning in the classroom.

The majority of activities will be fun in order to motivate and engage, whilst ensuring the children are getting the most of their learning!

Week 2

This week, the children have been consolidating their understanding of place value up to 1,000,000. They have been using this knowledge to multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1,000. As a reward for their hard work this week, please click on the link below for a Who Wants to be a Millionaire style game, which will test their knowledge of place value. This game requires Flash player. 

Have a great weekend all!

Week 3

This week we have been learning about positive and negative numbers. We have been ordering and finding the difference between these values, an important skill in Year 6. In addition to this, we have been doubling and halving a range of numbers, up to and including tens and hundreds of thousands. 

I am sending home a paper copy of homework this week, relating to doubling and halving. We will be working through this on Monday as a class, so if all children could return it by Monday that would be excellent. 

I have also added a game (click the link below), which will consolidate their understanding this week. Please note; this game requires Flash Player. 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Week 4

This week we have been working on our Numerical Reasoning skills, applying our knowledge of rules and patterns and intrepretation of graphs, in order to use simple Alebgra.

The last part of the week has centred around mental maths skills and as such, a short test will be part of the homework this weekend, which consolidates the first test we have completed in school. 

Please could all children return their completed sheets to school on Monday, so that we can self-assess the work.

Many thanks!

Week 5

This week, we have been revising multiplication strategies, in order to solve a range of problems. We have been working on the Grid Method and will be moving onto Long Multiplication next week. As a way of consolidating our learning, I have sent home a worksheet, using only the grid method. Please could this be returned by Monday next week, to form part of our lesson and for the children to self-assess their work. 

I look forward to seeing you all at Parents Evening next week. 

Have a great weekend, 

Miss J

 

Week 6 

This week, I have set an ALFIE online test, in order to consolidate all of the areas we have covered so far this term. All children will be able to access the test at home and their results will be available to look at, once they have submitted the test. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Week 7

This week, wwe have introduced Long Multiplication as a way of solving 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication and also 3 digit by 2 digit calculations. 

The following link shows a short video, refreshing the method and also explains how to complete a calculation. There is a link on the bottom of the page, for the children to complete a quiz, answering a range of questions.

We will be working on this method again next week, so practise would be beneficial, to ensure a thorough understanding. 

Have a great weekend, 

Miss J

 

Week 9

This week, we have been learning the 'Chunking Method', when dividing. The children have been consolidating their knowledge of this method throughout the week and as such, I have decided to trial a very different homework task!

I have emailed the children a copy of a spreadsheet, which enables the user to devise their own sum. It should (hopefully!) remind the children of the process as they go along! The majority of the children were able to access their email during lesson time on Friday and thankfully, they all worked! The spreadsheet has been designed using Excel, but will convert to Google Sheets if the children are using a Chrome Book, or another Google devise.

I have asked the children to email me when they have completed at least 4 calculations. They are more than welcome to complete more!

For children that do not have an email address in school at pressent, please email me and I will forward the spreadsheet to the most appropriate address (missjenkins@mountpleasantprimary.co.uk).

Many thanks in advance! I hope this works! 21st Century learning!

Week 10

We have been learning to convert Improper Fractions to Mixed Number Fractions this week, learning the rules and showing off our conversion skills. The children showed a clear understanding of the methods and as such, we moved onto Simplifying Fractions. This can often be quite tricky, but they have worked incredibly hard and were able to use Common Factors to help calculate the problems. As such, the homework this week is paper based and will help to consolidate their understanding of simplifying. The rules have been inserted on the top of the worksheet to remind the children of the process they should follow. Please coudl this sheet be returned by Monday 20th November, thank you. 

Have a great weekend all, 

Miss J

 

Week 11

This week we have continued to work on our knowledge of fractions. The children have been learning how to find fractions of an amount and how to order fractions with different denominators. 

In order to consolidate their knowledge, please could they complete the paper copy homework and return on Monday. There is also a fun quiz for the children to try, please click the link below;

Here is a link to a helpful tutorial, incase the children need reminding of the rules;

Have a great weekend!

Week 12

We have completed our work on fractions and this week, we moved onto decimals. The children have been ordering, adding and subtracting and converting fractions into decimals, in order to understand the relationship.

Please click the link below, to consolidate these skills, with a fun game. Enjoy!

Week 13

This week has seen the final part of our Fractions, Decimals and Percentages work and as such, I have set an Alfie quiz, to consolidate all knowledge and skills used during the last few weeks. This will help to highlight any areas for development and revision in future planning. 

Please click the image below, to begin the test. I have also emailed the children via their Google accounts, incase this link does not work on your computer/tablet.

Many thanks, 

Miss J

Week 14

There will be no Maths homework this weekend, a well deserved rest, in preparation for Cinderella and Rockerfella!

Have a great weekend!

Week 1 - Spring Term 

Welcome back!

This week, we have been learning about the relationship between, Ratio and Proportion. This week, the children have a worksheet to complete, which will consolidate skills covered so far.

Please could the homework be returned to school on Monday 15th, in readiness for our lesson. 

Many thanks, 

Miss J

Week 2 - Spring Term

Thank you to everyone that returned the Ratio homework this week.

We have started working on Mean, Median, Mode and Range this week, with the children learning the definitions of each term and calculating each, in a range of different tasks. 

As such, the homework this week, will look at one of the areas in particular and further enhance their learning. Please could this be returned to school by Monday of next week. 

In addition to this, please click the link below, for a game which will help consolidate everything we have been working on. Enjoy! (You may need to block the pop-up in order for the game to work successfully). 

Have a great weekend, 

Miss J

Week 3 - Spring Term 

We have had a very busy week! Our main focus has been on Prime, Square and Triangular numbers, with the latter involving researching and learning about Pascal's Triangle! Well done Year 6! Some high level learning!

As homework this week, there is a worksheet based on calculating and recognising square numbers. It also involves solving expressions (do not panic, not too tricky!), using their knowledge of how to calculate a square number. 

Please could this be returned by Monday next week ( 29.01.18), as we will be marking these and putting them into our books as evidence. 

Have a great weekend everyone, 

Many thanks, 

Miss J

Week 4 - Spring Term

This week, it has been the anticipated return of the 6 Nations Investigation! We are going to use this tournament to our advantage and each and every Maths lesson, during this period, will be related to rugby and the players in some way! I can not wait for us to start!

As a result, I have decided to set a very different piece of homework this weekend! I would like the children (if possible!), to watch the Wales v Scotland match tomorrow afternoon! It will help with their understanding of the game, how points are scored and just the sheer excitement that these games can create! Please do not worry if they are not able to watch; (there is always Scrum V on Sunday night!)  we will watching highlights on Monday morning! 

Have a great weekend all!
