Year 6 Maths Curriculum: Home Learning Toolkit for 10 & 11 Year Olds

Ellie williams.

Year 6 maths is harder than you might think; and it’s testament to the strength and resilience of children and their primary school class teachers that by the end of the year these 10 and 11 year old children are ready to sit 3 exams in the subject – 2 reasoning and 1 arithmetic SATs paper.

Here at Third Space Learning we’ve been supporting 10 and 11 year old children with maths tuition from the Year 6 maths national curriculum for several years. This article aims to provide UK parents of 10 and 11 year olds with everything they need to support their child with Year 6 maths at home: advice, helpful hints and links to resources and all our free Year 6 maths worksheets and a Year 6 maths test .

Whatever the primary maths scheme of work your school uses ( White Rose maths is a popular one you may have heard of) Year 6 children across the country will broadly be expected to learn the same knowledge and skills by the end of their Year 6 maths lessons.

Even in an ordinary year, with exams looming and pressure mounting, this period can often feel overwhelming to young minds. Combine this with worries over what the approaching move to secondary school will bring and Year 6 can be a challenging time for all – parents included!

But don’t fear, we’re here to take some of that ever-increasing load off and show you the best (and simplest!) ways to help your 10-year-old or your 11-year old with Year 6 maths at home.

What the Year 6 Maths curriculum says

Topics in the year 6 maths programme of study, understanding the changes from year 5 maths to year 6 maths, number and place value in year 6 maths, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in year 6 maths, fractions including decimals and percentages in year 6 maths, ratio and proportion in year 6 maths, algebra in year 6 maths, measurement in year 6 maths, geometry (properties of shape; position and direction) in year 6 maths, statistics in year 6 maths, year 6 maths…sats, sats, sats…, how to answer sats reasoning questions, also in this series….

The principal focus of mathematics teaching in upper key stage 2, especially Year 6 is to ensure that pupils extend their understanding of the number system and place value to include larger integers – numbers up to 10 million. This should develop the connections that pupils make between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio. 

At this stage, pupils should develop their ability to solve a wider range of problems, including increasingly complex properties of numbers and arithmetic, and problems demanding efficient written and mental methods of calculation. 

With this basis in arithmetic, pupils are introduced to the language of algebra as a means for solving a variety of problems. 

Teaching in geometry and measures should build on and extend knowledge developed in number. Teaching should also ensure that pupils classify shapes with increasingly complex geometric properties and that they learn the mathematical vocabulary they need to describe them. 

By the end of year 6, pupils should be fluent in written methods for all four operations, including long multiplication and division, and in working with fractions, decimals and percentages. 

Pupils should read, spell and pronounce all their mathematical terms correctly.

  • Number and place value
  • Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Fractions including decimals and percentages
  • Ratio & proportion
  • Measurement
  • Geometry (properties of shapes)
  • Geometry (position and direction)

You do not need to worry too much about the detail of what is being taught in each of these topics, but the following guidance will help you help your Year 6 with any of their maths homework and give you a sense of what the questions are asking for.

The entire Year 6 maths curriculum is available from gov.uk .

It’s important to note that some Year 6 maths topics are more suitable than others for working on at home. We’ve highlighted below the ones we think you should probably leave to teachers unless you’re very confident in the approach the school is taking to this topic.

A collection of free Year 6 maths activities and worksheets from the Third Space Maths Hub. You need to register to download (but it's free). Use Google Chrome.

The good news is that the curriculum is fairly stable by Year 6!

This means that questions such as:

What does my child most need help with?

What are they best at in maths lessons?

Is there anything that I can do to help?

will all have be answered and your child can begin to focus on the two big live events in year 6: the KS2 SATs in May and the upcoming transition from primary to secondary school and the start of quite different Year 7 maths .

Although there are a couple of new ideas that come into play, they aren’t too tricky compared to the Year 5 programme of study.

This year is essentially a consolidation of all the skills your child has learnt in primary school, preparing them for a successful experience in secondary maths lessons, as well as later on in life!

The key is to balance the revision of the basics with the consistent practice of newer concepts, cultivating a mindful approach to exams along the way.

If your Year 6 ever finds maths overwhelming, just take a break from the school work and try to come at it from a different angle. Maths games are brilliant for such times. We’ve got several articles sharing all our best fun maths games , including KS2 maths games , KS1 maths games and KS3 maths games for all maths topics and a set of 35 times tables games you’ll want to bookmark whichever year group you teach!

In Year 6 number and place value simply extends the learning earlier down in the school. Numbers get bigger – from two-digit numbers all the way up to 10 million and smaller – to thousandths of a decimal place; children are expected to be confident both in saying them out loud and in writing them down.

This is something you can practise with your child when you see numbers in the newspapers or even trying to read out part of a phone number or an electricity meter – it’s not as easy as it looks!

One of the best tools for securing the concept of place value is this place value grid which is a cinch to make at home. Or you can try out these place value games and activities .

In Year 6 maths the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – are taught together rather than in pairs. It is assumed by now that children understand the commutativity principle and that division is the opposite of multiplication and, subtraction is the opposite of addition.

Year 6 children learn about and use common factors, common multiples, and prime numbers as well as indices. You will probably notice that your child’s mental calculations improve quite significantly during and they are able to perform much more complex maths in their heads.

In Year 6 maths BODMAS and the order of operations rears its head so encourage your child to learn the acronym, whether its BODMAS or BIDMAS (I = indices).

One of the greatest challenges in this topic is likely to be Year 6 long division which is why we created this guide for parents and kids on short and long division.

Here’s a snapshot of what’s involved…

Different division questions call for different methods of division to solve them, but here is a quick and easy guide to show which method your child should use and when:

  • Chunking is best for smaller numbers and arithmetic.
  • Short division is great for dividing larger numbers by one digit numbers.
  • The long division method is handy for dividing large numbers by numbers with 2 or more digits.

KS2 fractions can prove a hurdle for many children even in Year 6. This fractions for kids article helps to break down the stages children need to learn fractions and it’s a topic that’s worth devoting some time to.

Talking to your child about their Year 6 fractions work will unleash a world of new mathematical terms and processes such as equivalent fractions, comparing and ordering fractions, and writing fractions in their simplest form.

Simplifying fractions just means that we use the lowest possible numbers when we work them out, using our times tables knowledge and division facts to reduce the size of the denominator and numerator.

In year 6 maths lessons children will also learn subtracting fractions and how to work with mixed numbers and how to multiply fractions with different denominators. There’s a lot to cover, so just support your child to work with what they’re learning.

By the end of Year 6, your child will need to know how to convert fractions into decimals and decimals into percentages.

  • Converting fractions into decimals : Divide the numerator by the denominator.
  • Converting decimals into percentages : Multiply the decimal by 100. For example, 0.79 would become 79%.
  • Converting percentages into decimals : Divide the percentage by 100. So, 87% would become 0.87.
  • Converting percentages into fractions : Put the percentage amount over 100 (e.g. 75% = 75/100), then simplify it – in this case ¾ .

For more detailed guidance read this article on comparing  fractions decimals and percentages .

The national curriculum puts percentages of amounts and degrees etc into the topic ratio and proportion in Year 6. This is a challenging topic for parents to help with as it’s so easy to confuse children with a different method from the one they’ve been taught.

We’d suggest just working on some simple Year 6 ratio activities like the two below is probably the best way to approach this topic. Speaking frankly, it doesn’t lend itself so well to home support.

Year 6 Ratio activity: Dealing with discounts while sale shopping

When you’re out shopping practise working out sale discounts.

Work out 10% to begin with, before working your way up to multiples of 10% and 5%.

There’s really no substitute for concrete learning when it comes to these concepts – Year 6 maths becomes a lot easier when you practise it in context!

Year 6 Ratio activity: Baking recipes

Find a recipe that serves a lot of people and ask your child to think about how they can make the recipe the right size for you using division and fraction terminology (“ We’ll need half/a quarter/an eighth of this recipe ”).

An example of a maths question could be:

Last week you made a cake that had 8 slices. Unfortunately, this was too big and some of it had to be thrown away!

You want to make another cake this week, but you only need to use half the amount of ingredients.

Last week’s cake recipe:

  • 220g butter
  • 220g caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 80g raspberry jam

Can you work out how much of each ingredient you would need to make a cake half this size?

Can you work out how much of each ingredient you would need to make a cake a quarter of this size?

Again, this is not a topic that we recommend spending too much time on at home with your child. In maths lessons year 6 pupils will be taught simple formulae and then some missing number problems and problems with ‘unknown quantities’.

These are best taught by your child’s class teacher.

In Year 6 children learn to convert units of measure, length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit to a larger unit and vice versa. Also between imperial (miles) and metric units (kilometres)

As a refresher, these are the facts they’ll need to know:

They will also be looking at volume of cubes and cuboids, and comparing area and perimeters of shapes such as parallelograms and triangles.

There are lots of ways to build on your Year 6 child’s measurement lessons at home. Start by highlighting the weights and measurements of everyday kitchen foodstuffs just to show them what 500g looks like or 1 litre.

Measure every member of the family and work out the differences in height. Look at other items and think about what you would use to measure them. For example ear 6 maths tests often seem to include questions about capacity of buckets and most 10 and 11 year old children really struggle with knowing how much a bucket would hold (generally about 2 or 4 litres).

The topic of geometry in Year 6 maths is split into two subtopics: shape and position and direction. The latter is mostly about plotting points on a quadrant so it helps to make sure your child knows the difference between the x-axis (across) and the y-axis (up and down).

Shape can prove a little trickier. Children are expected to compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons. They also use nets to build 3-D shapes.

They will do lots of angles work, starting to use a protractor, and working out, where angles meet and what missing angles amount to. They’ll also start to understand the parts of a circle knowing that the diameter is twice the radius.

Year 6 Geometry activity: Protractor practice

Protractors are often a mystery to primary school age children, so you can clear things up by using them often around the house.

A quick and easy way to handle a protractor is:

  • 1: Use a ruler to draw a few different sized angles on a sheet of paper.
  • 2: Challenge your child to measure as many as possible in a minute.
  • 3. Next, switch roles!
  • 4: It’s your turn to measure as many angles as possible, in a different colour pen, for one minute.
  • 5: Once all the angles are measured, go back and check for accuracy.
  • 6: Whoever got the most angles right wins the game (and perhaps a small reward!).

While drawing angles might seem like straightforward maths for 10-year-olds, it constitutes the first steps towards secondary-level trigonometry.

In Year 6 statistics, children use pie charts and line graphs to solve problems, as well as revising other forms of data representations from pictograms and line graphs to frequency tables. They will also be looking at the mean as an average.

Part of becoming confident in Year 6 maths is being comfortable with a range of mathematical information.

If your child is getting mixed up interpreting data it’s a good idea to go back to basics and have a go at conducting a few surveys around the house before setting out the results in tables and graphs.

Year 6 Statistics Activity: Charting the Weather

Here’s a great activity to do in the rainy months (which shouldn’t be hard to come across in England!) to help with data interpretation through using a real-life example that even helps boost our science understanding.

Dot Your Data: A fun Year 6 maths activity

  • Step 1 : Pop a glass outside to collect water.
  • Step 2 : Measure the amount that falls each day.
  • Step 3 : Record the results in a table.
  • Step 4 : After one week, plot the results on a line graph.

When it comes to Year 6 maths, mention of the SATs test is never far away.

For many children this age, the transition into a formal exam year can be stressful, so now is the time to practise working through challenges with a cool head.

As a parent, you might feel under pressure too. Mathematics for children can be a minefield, and when everyone is talking about test scores and booster groups, it can be hard not compare your child’s progress against that of other children.

Every child is different, so your best bet is to focus on your own child’s needs instead of worrying about everyone else (no matter how much they go on about what’s right and wrong for the exams!).

  • Everything Parents Need to Know about SATS
  • 29 SATS Revision Tips and Tricks

The KS2 SATs in Maths consists of 3 papers: 1 Arithmetic Paper and 2 Reasoning Papers. The latter tests 10 and 11 year olds ability to reason and problem solve using the maths knowledge and skills they have learnt at primary school. This is the aspect of KS2 maths that a lot of children find hard so the rest of this article gives you some ideas for how to help.

Chances are your child will be practising test questions at school almost daily.

However, at school, the focus will be on working these questions out independently, which leaves a lot of room for misinterpretation.

Most teachers will revisit the harder questions, but it’s a good idea to practise at home so you can identify which questions are causing headaches.

Once you know which ones are problematic, you can work on a strategy to solve them in plenty of time for the exams.

This method isn’t foolproof as the examiners are always thinking up new ways to trip children up but when faced with a problem that seems insoluble it’s worth having a strategy to fall back on. This is what we recommend.

1. Read the whole question

  • Find words that you know.
  • Find words that you don’t know. Can you work what they mean from what’s around them?

2. Choose which tools to use

  • Which operations make sense here? Addition, subtraction, multiplication or division?

3. Try out your tools

  • Present work neatly so it’s easier to keep track later.

4. Check that the answer makes sense

  • If it does, do a quick check of your work.
  • If it doesn’t, work through the steps again.

Simple maths problems to work through with your 10 year old

Bill had three apples and ate two. How many did he have left?

Connor had £5. He spent £3 on lunch. How much money does he have left?

Rachel had 4 dogs. She bought 1 cat. How many pets does she have now?

If you manage to talk about the different ways you could approach the problem this will be very beneficial as dialogue around the process really helps understanding in maths.

Take the time to really dig into the process, and if you get it wrong, treat it as an opportunity to refine the process (rather than giving up).

Year Two student’s math question leaves the internet stumped

An “unsolvable” maths question intended for Year Two students has left hundreds of adults stumped after it went viral.

It all started when a mum shared her child’s homework question to the r/askmath Reddit.

The question starts off by referencing a previous equation that read: “200 + 60 + 9 = 269”, Kidspot reported.

Seems simple, right?

But here’s where it gets tricky.

The next question encourages students to “stretch your thinking” by writing another addition equation.

For more stories like this head to kidspot.com.au

It instructed: “The equation must have a 1-, a 2- and a 3-digit addend and use all of these digits.”

The digits in question included; 6, 6, 2, 2, 8, 8, 0, 0 and 0.

Maths question stumps adults. Picture: Reddit

The mum shared a photo of the question next to some working out that’s been scribbled out. She captioned the post: “Second-grade math question that we can’t figure out. The teacher asked for an answer as well that included the numbers. I am so stuck! This is probably so easy, but after an hour I’m at my wits’ end! Second grade!!!”

She added: “Please help this mama out.”

People then rushed to the comments to give the equation a crack and share their thoughts on the question as a whole.

“Fasten your seatbelts … we’re going from ‘Are you smarter than a fifth grader?’ to ‘Are you smarter than a second grader?’” one user quipped.

A second critiqued the question, saying: “Okay but what the heck is this supposed to teach the kids? Guess and check?”

“Yeah, that is not something I would expect very many second graders to get. But then again, that is the ‘Stretch your thinking’ question for this worksheet,” mentioned a third user.

The question was intended for Year Two questions. Picture: iStock

A fourth then made the point, “The unnecessary hyphens after the one and two kinda makes the question confusing, especially for a child.”

“What the hell are addends?” someone else asked, echoing everyone’s thoughts.

“I’m assuming your kid was taught what addends were before this homework was given? So they should have been able to at least explain that part considering that, from the comments, most people don’t have a clue what those are,” someone replied.

So, you’re probably dying to know the answer by now. And, thankfully, a smart cookie in the comments was able to help out.

Apparently, it was as simple as just recreating a similar formula to the previous answer.

What goes around comes around, and this kid found out quickly.

A young prankster was suspended from his $20,000-a-year school amid a weeks-long investigation after he drenched a group of women with milk during their boat ride on Jan. 27.

The 16-year-old unnamed Australian boy was handed a “combination of suspension and other punitive action, reparation, apologies and counseling,” in the wake of the viral stunt, which has been viewed more than 32.6 million times, according to the Herald Sun .

The boy is seen dumping milk on the passengers while they are on a GoBoat ride on the Yarra River.

“We continue to have the firm view that this behavior was completely unacceptable and have treated the matter with the utmost seriousness,” Melbourne Grammar School said.

The boy uploaded footage of the vile act under his Instagram account, “giddynokiddy,” as he showed himself dumping milk on top of the four women while they were on a GoBoat ride on the Yarra River.

One of the prankster’s alleged victims, who posted a video just moments after they were struck, said the group was celebrating a friend’s birthday.

“You book a GoBoat for your friends birthday and some kid on the bridge above us pours a whole bottle of milk on us for 😭😭😭,” Veronica Burgess wrote in the TikTok video posted on Jan. 27.

The short clip shows a picnic table the women were sitting at with fruits and snacks covered with milk, as someone can be heard saying, “We’re actually gonna stink.”

@veronicaburgess Would love to find the kid that ruined our day :) Go Boat were lovely enough to give us a credit for another day. #goboat #southbank #fyp #foryoupage #boatcruises ♬ original sound – Veronica Burgess

“Would love to find the kid that ruined our day :),” Burgess captioned the video.

One of Burgess’ friends is seen trying to shake milk out of a Bluetooth speaker due to the amount of milk that landed on the group.

Recognizing how far he might’ve gone, the boy allegedly told others in a video, that’s since been deleted on TikTok, to stop sending videos of him in the foul act to his school before he was ultimately expelled.

Milk was poured all over the women's belongings and snacks in a TikTok uploaded by Veronica Burgess.

“Please stop contacting my school, my school has caught me and I am facing expulsion. Can’t believe you would do this to (a) minor,” the boy wrote, according to the Herald Sun .

Melbourne Grammar School, founded in 1858, prides itself in being “one of Australia’s leading independent schools” in the country, the school’s website said.

The school’s local yearly tuition and boarding fee ranges from roughly $21,000 (USD) to $28,000 based on grade.

“Why’d you do this to me. You ruin my life over a ruined day, you upped the anti, I’m just a kid and you ruined my life. Too far,” the boy added.

Upon the school doing their private investigation on the matter, Victoria police also stepped in to issue the boy a warning for unlawful assault.

“The matter is now complete,” a Victoria police spokesman said.

The boy was frustrated after people were sending video of him committing the evil act to his school.

The boy’s prank stirred the pot across the internet as many bashed the “ongoing problem” in Melbourne.

“What goes through someone’s head to think I’m gonna go buy some milk and ruin someone’s day?????,” one outraged TikToker said.

“Not the kid trying to say that he’s just a child and shouldn’t be blamed for this,” another added.

“This is so sad! I hope it didn’t ruin the rest of your day,” one person said before Burgess said the group “showered and washed our hair then eventually got to continue our day.”

A fellow TikTok user claimed she experienced a similar prank on renting the GoBoat.

“This literally happened to me at melbourne we rented goboat, some kids in the bridge on top of us threw water balloons on us and it was cold during winter,” the user said. “But goboat refunded our money.”

year 6 algebra homework

The Mirror US

Parents baffled by tricky math question aimed at six-year-olds - can you figure it out?

A tricky math problem meant for six-year-olds has left parents puzzled as they try to figure out the answer. The homework question was shared on a mom's Facebook page, asking to fill in the missing numbers. Her daughter Summer did just that but was told by her teacher in the US that she was wrong.

Texas mom Tiesha Sanders posted a picture of her child's first-grade math homework. The question asked the child to fill in two boxes, one labeled "tens" and the other "ones," for the number '27'. The girl logically filled the "tens" box with a two and the "ones" box with a seven.

When the answer was marked incorrect, Tiesha was confused. She reached out to the teacher for clarification, writing on the homework sheet: "Hello, I just wanted to ask how Summer got #3 wrong? Her father and I were going over her mistakes and wanted to be sure we were on the right track. The teacher wrote back: " The teacher responded: "Hello this is the new math they have us teaching." The teacher then drew a diagram of the correct answer, explaining: "It wants her to know that having two tens and seven ones is the same as 27 ones."

The mom, who has been a primary school teacher for six years, was confused by her child's math homework and said: "This new math is NOT it." She shared the problem online, and 3700 people commented, agreeing that the question was tricky. One person wrote: "But if they have the box that labels 'tens' and 'ones' then only ask for the 'ones', how in the entire world is this math, mathing?" Someone else said the question was set up for kids to fail. Another suggested using equal signs instead of arrows to make it clearer.

This happened after another tough math question from a fifth-grade test puzzled many people. Posted on Reddit, it asked how many pages were in a book, saying: "Klein read 30 pages of a book on Monday and one-eighth of the book on Tuesday. He completed the remaining quarter of the book on Wednesday. How many pages are there in the book?"

A tricky question had many social media users scratching their heads, but a person with a PhD in engineering and a specialty in applied mathematics came to the rescue. They explained that it wasn't too hard to solve if you assumed Klein started reading on Monday. Then, divide 30 pages by five to find out what one-eighth is worth, which is six. Finally, multiply eight by six to get the answer - 48. And just like that, the puzzle is solved!
