Free Year 5 Maths Worksheets And Homework – Download, Print, Or View Online!
Here you’ll find all our Year 5 maths worksheets, and Year 5 maths tests that we’re releasing for free to parents and schools to support their home learning during any primary school closures.
This article is part of our series designed for parents and teachers supporting home learning and looking for home learning packs. It is suitable for those families doing regular or flexible home schooling or as part of additional support you may need during any lockdowns and time away from school due to Covid-19 or for other reasons.
What to expect from our Year 5 Maths worksheets
These worksheets cover every part of the Year 5 primary maths curriculum, to help your children practise and gain confidence in their understanding ahead of Year 6 and the KS2 SATs. Their focus is on retrieval practice – going over topics that children should already have covered and helping them strengthen their knowledge and understanding.
Most of our worksheets come in pdf format, and all of them are printable. But if you’re running out of printer ink, they can be viewed online too.
Every Year 5 maths test or worksheet comes with its own answer sheet, and guidance from the National Curriculum is included wherever it might be needed (for example, if there might be more than one correct answer for a question). Some worksheets also include model answers to help children break down the best way to solve a problem.
Note: The National Curriculum does not specify any place value teaching for Year 5. However this is often a good time to begin revising the topic (among others) in preparation for the KS2 SATs. Have a look at our post of place value worksheets for revision resources.
Similarly, addition and subtraction work is largely an extension of what was covered in previous years. Take a look at our collection of addition and subtraction worksheets for practice materials for these topics.

Year 5 Mental Maths Worksheets: Fluent in Five
One of our most popular resources with parents and teachers and a great way to start or end the day, Fluent in Five worksheets include 5-10 minutes worth of quick arithmetic questions designed to help children become quicker at making mental or written calculations.
Children are given around 5 questions per maths worksheet – more than in previous years – to get them used to completing more questions in a short space of time ahead of Year 6 and the KS2 maths arithmetic paper. Questions cover all aspects of the four operations including BODMAS and Roman Numerals!
Year 5 Maths reasoning and problem solving worksheets: Rapid Reasoning
Reasoning is one of the key maths skills pupils are expected to show by the time they take the Key Stage 2 SATs, and our Rapid Reasoning worksheets give them plenty of extra practice! This pack comes with six weeks of questions, with around three to four word problems to solve per day.
Year 5 Maths Worksheets for multiplication & division: Code Crackers
Our Code Crackers worksheets give children a fun way to revise their knowledge of a topic. Each Code Crackers worksheet includes a series of questions – in this case multiplication and division problems – based on what they have learned that year, and the answers can be put together to make the punchline of a joke!
In Year 5 children will mostly be practising long multiplication and division, but some short division/short multiplication questions are also included, to help them keep their knowledge of the basics sharp.
Year 5 Maths Worksheets on fractions: Code Crackers
By Year 5, children have learned about both equivalent fractions and improper fractions, and even begun combining the two. Our Code Crackers fractions worksheet helps them get even more practice in solving these complicated questions.
Year 5 Maths Worksheets on fractions: Independent Recap
Our newest style of maths worksheets, independent recap sheets are meant to be completed by children with little extra support, making them perfect home learning or homework activities.
This Year 5 maths worksheet focuses on finding fractions of amounts, and includes an arithmetic warm up involving adding and subtracting fractions, before moving onto reasoning questions that test how well children have learned how to calculate fractions of amounts.
Year 5 Maths Worksheets on decimals and percentages: Code Crackers
A worksheet of problems covering percentages and numbers up to two decimal places, with the answers coming together to form the punchline to the joke given at the start – great for retrieval practice!
Year 5 Maths Test: All topics
As your child gets closer to Year 6 and the Key Stage 2 SATs, it’s important they get used to the timings and styles of questions they might face. Our Year 5 maths tests includes two assessments – one arithmetic paper and one reasoning paper – with SATS style questions created by our curriculum experts, answers and a mark scheme with detailed explanations of how to solve each question.
Both papers should take about one hour to complete, and cover every part of the curriculum, from place value to geometry and 3d shapes. This makes them useful for checking your child’s overall understanding of the maths they’ve learned in Year 5, as well as providing them with exam practice.
Year 5 Maths Test: Times Tables
While Year 5 children are past the newly introduced multiplication tables check, knowing your times tables is a key part of many other maths topics they will learn. So it’s always worth keeping up with practice, and these quick worksheets help your child see exactly which ones they know by heart, and which they struggle with.
Year 5 Maths Worksheets on multiplication
By the end of Year 5, children are expected to be able to multipy up to 4-digit numbers by 1- and 2-digit numbers, and multiply decimal and whole numbers by multiples of 10 up to 1000, according to the National Curriculum.
These worksheets help pupils improve their skills with the former, with 45 questions ranging from multiplying 2-digit numbers by other 2-digit numbers all the way to multiplying 4-digit numbers. Each worksheet also comes with an answer scheme and modelled answers to show children how to correctly lay out their long multiplication calculations.
Year 5 Maths Worksheets for long division
Long division is one of the most difficult parts of the primary maths curriculum. This set of 3 worksheets helps children practice it in stages, including several short division questions to begin with to help them get warmed up before tackling the harder questions.
Year 5 Maths Worksheets for telling the time: Let’s Practise
Telling the time is a key life skill, but it comes up as a topic in the maths curriculum quite rarely. This series of activity sheets brings together everything children will have learned from Year 1 to Year 6, reinforcing your child’s knowledge of key concepts like ‘o’clock’ and ‘half past’ by including activities from both KS1 and KS2 from number lines to reading clock faces.
