Year 6 Maths Curriculum

Number and Place Value

  • read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10 000 000 and determine the value of each digit 
  • round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy 
  • use negative numbers in context, and calculate intervals across zero 
  • solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above

Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

  • multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication 
  • divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context 
  • divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate, interpreting remainders according to the context 
  • identify common factors, common multiples and prime numbers 
  • perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers 
  • use their knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the four operations 
  • solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why
  • solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division 
  • use estimation to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, an appropriate degree of accuracy

     

Fractions

  • use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination 
  • compare and order fractions, including fractions > 1 
  • add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions 
  • multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form [for example, 1/4 × 1/2 = 1/8] 
  • divide proper fractions by whole numbers [for example, 1/3 ÷ 2 = 1/6] 
  • associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents [for example, 0.375] for a simple fraction [for example, 3/8]
  • identify the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to three decimal places
  • multiply one-digit 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 
  • 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

     

Ratio and Proportion

  • solve problems involving the relative sizes of two quantities where missing values can be found by using integer multiplication and division facts
  • solve problems involving the calculation of percentages [for example, of measures, and such as 15% of 360] and the use of percentages for comparison
  • 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
     

Algebra

  • 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
     

Measurement

  • 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, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to three decimal places
  • convert between miles and kilometres
  • recognise that shapes with the same areas can have different perimeters and vice versa
  • recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes
  • calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles
  • calculate, estimate and compare volume of cubes and cuboids using standard units, including cubic centimetres (cm³) and cubic metres (m³), and extending to other units [for example, mm³ and km³]
     

Geometry - Properties of a shape

  • 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 and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
  • illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius
  • recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles
     

 

Geometry - Position and Direction

  • describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants)
  • draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes
     

Statistics

  • interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems
  • calculate and interpret the mean as an average
