Maths Resources for Support at Home:

These resources follow some of the strategies we teach in Year 6 concerning the core mathematical skills pupils will be engaging with. Some videos on place value refer to ‘units’, some to ‘ones’, but, in school, we use ‘ones’ in accordance with the national curriculum, so use them when practising at home. The following videos are helpful for understanding how the teaching of maths has changed and how best to support your child at home. Use the videos to build understanding before making up some problems of your own to try!

The resources have been organised into the subjects covered by the Year 6 Curriculum.
