Year 6

These are the key skills that each child will be working towards in year 6. 

 

By the end of year 6, children should be able to confidently:

  • Locate numbers up to 999,999 on a landmarked line; use this to compare/order numbers.
  • Round to ten, a hundred and a thousand, ten thousand or one hundred thousand.
  • Read scales with accuracy and confidence
  • Add and subtract mentally with confidence – where the numbers are less than 100 or the calculation relies upon simple addition/subtraction and place value. Examples include: 6,723 – 400,  78 + 46, 72 – 46, 8020 + 910, 100 – 64, 5000 + 12,000, etc.
  • Add several large numbers using written addition, e.g. 11895

                                                                                                   3478

                                                                                                   3165

                                                                                                   121

          18538

  • Add several large or decimal numbers using written addition, e.g. 18.9

                                                                                                                       3.47

     11

        21.17

  • Subtract large numbers using decomposition or counting up, e.g. 1323 – 758 
  • Subtract decimal numbers using counting up          
  • Multiply numbers up to 20 by single-digit numbers mentally or using grid method
  • Multiply 2-digit numbers by 2-digit or 3-digit numbers using grid method
  • Scale up or down by a factor of 2, 5 or 10
  • Perform divisions mentally within the range of tables facts using remainders or rounding the answer up or down as appropriate, e.g. 68 ÷ 8 = 8 r4 or 8½  or how many toy spiders can be made if I have 68 legs? (Ans = 8) or how many minibuses each holding 8 children will be needed to transport 68 children? (Ans = 9).
  • Divide 3-digit by one-digit numbers using chunking.
  • Recognise equivalent fractions, e.g. 4/8 = ½; reduce fractions to their simplest form
  • Identify simple fraction/decimal equivalents: ½ = 0.5, ¼ = 0.25, ¾ = 0.75, 1/3 = 0.33, etc.  
  • Understand that if two numbers less than 1 are multiplied, the answer is smaller than either of them.
  • Calculate simple percentages of whole numbers.
  • Solve missing number problems.
  • Generate and describe linear sequences.
  • Use, read and write, and convert between, standard units.
  • Measure areas and perimeters; understand that area is a measurement of covering and is measured in square units, and perimeter is a length, measured in cm, m or mm. 
  • Use 12 and 24 hour clocks; calculate time intervals; use timetables.
  • Compare and classify geometric shapes; identify circles and parts of circles.
  • Identify positions in the first and fourth quadrants on a co-ordinate grid; reflect and translate shapes.
  • Find and interpret the mean (average) of several quantities.
