In Year 6, we teach maths skill discretely whilst also using our curriculum topics to reinforce this learning where possible. We start the year with developing our place value knowledge as this is the basic for all our mathematical learning. We look at numbers with 7 or more digits as well as decimal numbers with up to 2 decimal places. We then work on developing our other number facts such as negative numbers before moving on to secure written methods for all four calculations and develop our understanding of how to use these to solve problems. At the start of our maths lessons we do a 'Fluent in Five' task which works on securing calculation methods using mental and written methods.
