Inevitably, many of these have been designed originally to be Year 6 SATs revision worksheets for pupils preparing for their end of primary school KS2 SATs but whether they are sitting their SATs or not, they still need to know the content, and you still want them ready for Year 7 maths next year at secondary school.
If giving as homework encourage parents to read our explainer What is Place Value and then work through these SATs Revision packs on place value, which cover basic number facts all the way to decimal numbers, designed to for use in the final year of primary school.
These lessons are what we use during our online maths interventions. The year 6 addition and subtraction worksheets include lots of addition and subtraction questions for children to follow along with. As they are intended to be used by a tutor teaching and supporting a child through their Year 6 addition and subtraction understanding, parents may need to be prepared to step in occasionally.
Mastering BODMAS and the order of operations is key in Year 6 as they start working with indices, square numbers and brackets as well as the standard four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This set of KS2 maths worksheets gives 40 word problems of increasing levels of difficulty; if a child struggles with the year 6 four operations questions, then suggest they look at the Year 3, 4 or 5 maths problems instead.
Of course one of the skills the SATs papers test is identifying exactly what the question is asking for, and which maths operation to undertake. The following practice Year 6 maths sats papers or Year 6 SATs tests provide a range of question types and topics, requiring children to switch between multiplication and division to 2D shapes and 3D shapes from one question to the next. They all include answer sheets so children can self mark as required.
Teach your child multiplication is an eBook and home-teaching kit (£4.99) which will help you understand exactly what multiplication skills your child is expected to have mastered in each year of the primary school curriculum. 2b1af7f3a8
