This week we will be revisiting multiplication methods, division with remainders and calculating perimeter. For each lesson, watch the video first (by using the link below and finding the correct video), after this complete the worksheet and check your answers once you have finished.
There are fluency questions and 'creative challenges' to complete if you would like some extra maths to do. Remember to only do as much as you can - these activities aren't compulsory.
Fluency - five arithmetic questions a day
Today is the Maths Cooking Challenge! If you are joining in with this challenge, watch the video of Mr D from Classroom Kitchen https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/ Follow the recipe to create your own a Clue-Dough Carrot Cake. If you are not joining in with this challenge, there is some problem solving maths for you to complete. See the documents below.
Once you have baked your cake and allowed it to cool, you can create one of two puzzles to challenge your family (or yourself!) to complete.
- The first puzzle you could make is a jigsaw: using icing sugar to create a pattern on the top of your cake, then mix up the pattern and challenge someone to put it back together again.
- The second puzzle is a Tangram Puzzle. These puzzles are typically made up of seven shapes which you need to mix up and then rearrange into a square again. You could also create a tangram using paper if you would like to challenge somebody else once you have eaten your cake! The completed tangram should look like the image below:
Have fun and send us any photos of what you get up to!
Problem Solving Challenges

For today's lesson we will be revisiting calculating perimeter. Remember when not all the sides are given to think carefully about how you can use the measurements provided to work out these missing sides. You may need to add or subtract to find your answer.
Thursday Creative Maths Challenge
Can you work out which triangles are described below? First, you might want to recap on the properties of different types of triangles here
Who am I?
I have one right angle and no equal sides. Who am I?
I have a pair of equal sides and two angles of 45 degrees. Who am I?
I have one angle of 80 degrees, one of 40 degrees. Who am I?
Can you make your own ‘Who am I’ clues about a selection of quadrilaterals for a family member to solve?

Today we are revisiting division using the 'bus stop' method. With each four digit number you
are being asked to divide, there will be a remainder (number left over). Remember to help with each step of the written division, you can use your times table square to check division facts. You could also use objects in your house as place value counters to group or draw out dots and circle these as your working out.
Wednesday Maths Creative Challenge
Use the link below to access the Quadrilaterals challenge from Nrich. You can recap on the properties of different 2D shapes here
- How many different quadrilaterals can be made by joining the dots on the circle?
- Can you name them?
- Can you work out the angles of all your quadrilaterals?
If you have a protractor at home you could measure the angles to check.
A message from White Rose Maths about this week’s Friday Maths Challenge:
As it's a bank holiday on Friday, we've got a special challenge in store for you!
We've teamed up with Classroom Kitchen to bring you 3 maths-themed recipes!
View a copy of the ingredients lists below so you can get prepared.
More information will be revealed on Friday.
Please don’t panic about getting hold of ingredients if you are unable to do so. I will ensure that there is alternative learning uploaded ‘just in case’.
Keep safe everyone,

Today, we will be progressing on to mutliply a four digit number by a two digit number using the formal written method and the grid or area method from yesterday to check our answers. Again, your times tables knowledge will be crucial. You could warm up using times tables rockstars first and have a times tables square to hand to check your answers as you go along if you want.

Today, we will revisiting using the area model (or grid method) to multiply 2 digit by 2 digit numbers. Remember your times tables knowledge is essential here. Use a times tables square to check your answers if you want.
Monday Maths Creative Challenge
Investigate when the same amount of liquid in pints and litres will both be whole numbers?
*1 pint is 0.57 litres
Can you use a table to help you?
