In the Year 6 maths mastery curriculum, the main focus is for children to extend their understanding of the number system and place value to include larger integers. Also to develop the connection of multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio.

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

This video has been taken from the Mathematics Guidance for Key Stages 1 and 2 which was published in June 2020 by the Department for Education (DfE) in association with the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Maths (NCETM). The guidance is non-statutory but it was designed to be used alongside the National Curriculum to help primary schools develop pupil's maths mastery

Although it is primarily for teachers and schools, we believe parents/carers will also find it helpful and informative in providing an overview to maths in Year 6. It summarises the most important knowledge and understanding children need to master in order to be ready for Year 7. These important concepts are often referred to as ready-to-progress criteria.

The following is a more detailed list of all the maths that is learnt in Year 6. This has been taken from the National Curriculum in England: Mathematics Programmes of Study for Pupils in Year 6 (updated 28th September 2021)

**Year 6 objectives that can be supported with our plavalmat® maths place value resources: ****plavalmat® place value mats****, ****counters**** and ****base ten ****have been highlighted. **
