In maths we will be working on recognising the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages and conversions between these.
We will then look at Ratio including the relative size or two quantities, finding missing values and using scale factors.
This will be followed by work on finding areas: of triangles, rectangles and paralellograms and work on finding volumes of 3d shapes. We will also complete work on converting between different units including some imperial measures and will finish the term by working on statistics including graphs and pie charts.
How you can help…
- Practise times tables to increase fluency: children who are not fluent with their times tables will struggle with the pace of calculation in year 6 and will find reasoning problems difficult as most of their focus will be on the calculation proceedures.
- Support and encourage your children with their maths homework
