# Year 6

Number and place value

In Year 6, children learn to:

• round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy;
• use negative numbers in context and calculates intervals across zero.

Calculation

In Year 6, children learn to:

• multiply multi-digit numbers up to four digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication;
• divide numbers up to four digits by a two digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate, interpreting remainders;
• solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why;
• use estimation to check answers to calculations and determines, in the context of a problem, an appropriate degree of accuracy.
• 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.

Fractions (including decimals and percentages)

In Year 6, children learn to:

• recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts;
• solve problems involving the calculation of percentages e.g. of measures and calculations such as 15 per cent of 360, and the use of percentages for comparison;
• solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples.

Ratio and proportion

In Year 6, children learn to:

• solve problems involving the calculation of percentages e.g. of measures and calculations such as 15 per cent of 360, and the use of percentages for comparison;
• solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples.

Algebra

In Year 6, children learn to:

• uses simple formulae.

Measurement

In Year 6, children learn to:

• 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.

Geometry (properties of shape)

In Year 6, children learn to:

• compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and finds unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals and regular polygons.

Geometry (position and direction)

In Year 6, children learn to:

• draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane and reflect them in the axes.

Statistics

In Year 6, children learn to:

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