Year 6 maths will include new work and revision of earlier topics. Children will be working on three-step problems now, using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We encourage them to work independently, deciding themselves on the best method of solving a problem, and then estimating their results and checking to see if they are correct. Revision will help to prepare them for KS2 SATs and secondary school – if they do not have a grasp of certain mathematical methods now, we support the children through targeted interventions. We also support our Greater Depth learners with interventions also.
Maths is taught through mental, practical and written lessons, and where possible, the children are shown how it links to other areas of the curriculum, such as science or ICT, as well as everyday life.
