Free Year 6 Maths Worksheets And Homework: Printable, Downloadable Or View Online
Here you’ll find all our free Year 6 maths worksheets and Year 6 maths tests most suitable for homework.
If you’re a teacher or school leader we recommended you include a link to these on the Year 6 page of your website. If you’re a parent, these are here to help you find your way through home learning during this period.
Inevitably, many of these have been designed to support Year 6 pupils in preparing for their end of primary school KS2 SATs but whether your child is sitting their SATs or not, they still need to know the content, and you still want them ready for Year 7 maths next year at secondary school.
A note on the Year 6 maths worksheets provided
All the Third Space Learning Year 6 maths worksheets are printable; most are in pdf format, some are designed as slides, but if you don’t want to print for whatever reason all the worksheets can be viewed online too.
We always include answers in our maths resource packs but for any teachers wanting to delve further into any of these topics take a look at our KS2 Maths teaching guides which cover everything from long division to pie charts.
How we’ve selected the Year 6 maths homework activities
We are providing here a selection of the pdf Year 6 maths worksheets and, Year 6 maths tests that we believe can be used with minimal support by 10 or 11 year olds as part of their home learning.
The focus here is on retrieval practice. This means working on skills and knowledge a Year 6 should already have been taught (even if they can’t remember it yet!) and supporting them with strategies to approach SATs questions rather than teaching them new content.
Inevitably there’s a focus at this stage on ensuring pupils core number work is really sound, and on the topics that work well for Year 6 maths worksheets. There’s nothing here for example on identifying shapes or properties of shapes such as parallelograms or quadrilaterals because you can find these easily online already.
Primary National Curriculum guidance and links to other parental support for learning maths at home is given where relevant alongside the maths worksheets.
