Year 6 - Programme of Study (Level 6)


Number & Place Value

  • read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10 000 000 and determine the value of each digit
  • round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy
  • use negative numbers in context, and calculate intervals across zero
  • solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above.

Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

·         multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication

·         divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context

·         divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate, interpreting remainders according to the context

·         perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers

·         identify common factors, common multiples and prime numbers

·         use their knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the four operations

·         solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why

·         solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division

·         use estimation to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, an appropriate degree of accuracy.

Fractions (Including decimals and percentages)

·         use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination

·         compare and order fractions, including fractions > 1

·         add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions

·         multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form [for example, 4 1 × 2 1 = 8 1 ]

·         divide proper fractions by whole numbers [for example, 3 1 ÷ 2 = 6 1 ]

·         associate a fraction with division and calculate decimal fraction equivalents [for example, 0.375] for a simple fraction [for example, 8 3 ]

·         identify the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to three decimal places

  • multiply one-digit numbers with up to two decimal places by whole numbers
  • use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places
  • solve problems which require answers to be rounded to specified degrees of accuracy
  • recall and use equivalences between simple fractions, decimals and percentages, including in different contexts.

Ratio and Proportion

  • solve problems involving the relative sizes of two quantities where missing values can be found by using integer multiplication and division facts
  • solve problems involving the calculation of percentages [for example, of measures, and such as 15% of 360] and the use of percentages for comparison
  • solve problems involving similar shapes where the scale factor is known or can be found
  • solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples.


  • use simple formulae
  • generate and describe linear number sequences
  • express missing number problems algebraically
  • find pairs of numbers that satisfy an equation with two unknowns
  • enumerate possibilities of combinations of two variables.


  • solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure, using decimal notation up to three decimal places where appropriate
  • use, read, write and convert between standard units, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to three decimal places
  • convert between miles and kilometres
  • recognise that shapes with the same areas can have different perimeters and vice versa
  • recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes
  • calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles
  • calculate, estimate and compare volume of cubes and cuboids using standard units, including cubic centimetres (cm3 ) and cubic metres (m3 ), and extending to other units [for example, mm3 and km3 ].


Properties of Shapes

·         draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles ·         recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets ·         compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons ·         illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius ·         recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles.

Position and Direction

·         describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants) ·         draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes.


·         interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems ·         calculate and interpret the mean as an average.
