Strand  Ref  Know how to  e.g. 

Number  6N2  Read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10,000,000 

6N3  Determine the value of each digit in numbers up to 10,000,000 

6N4  Round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy 

6N5  Use negative numbers in context, and calculate intervals across zero 

6N6  Solve number problems and practical problems that involve 6N26N5 

CALCULATIONS (+, –, ÷, ×) 
6C3  Use estimation to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, an appropriate degree of accuracy 

6C4  Solve addition and subtraction multistep problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why 

6C5  Identify common factors, common multiples and prime numbers 

6C6  Perform mental calculations, including with mixed operations and large numbers 

6C7a  Multiply multidigit numbers up to 4 digits by a twodigit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication 

6C7b  Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a twodigit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context 

6C7c  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 

6C8  Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division 

6C9  Use their knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the four operations 
Strand  Ref  Know how to  e.g. 

FRACTIONS  6F2  Use common factors to simplify fractions; use common multiples to express fractions in the same denomination 

6F3  Compare and order fractions, including fractions >1 

6F4  Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions 

6F5a  Multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form [eg: ¼ × ½= ⅛] 

6F5b  Divide proper fractions by whole numbers [eg: ⅓ ÷ 2 = ⅙] 

6F6  Associate a fraction with division to calculate decimal fraction equivalents (eg: 0.375) for a simple fraction [eg: ⅜ ] 

6F9a  Identify the value of each digit to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to three decimal places 

6F9b  Multiply onedigit numbers with up to two decimal places by whole numbers 

6F9c  Use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to twodecimal places 

6F10  Solve problems which require answers to be rounded to specified degrees of accuracy
