Maths Year 6
You should complete a 5-a-day task each day as your daily maths starter activity. You will need to go to 5-a-day – Corbettmaths Primary You can choose from Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum. Look at the quizzes and choose one that you think is the right level for you. You can have a go at any level but as a guide, Mrs Q's Year 6s should be working at a Gold or Platinum level and Year 5s at a Silver or Gold level. You can find these tasks in date order, so you should do a new quiz each day. You should complete your quiz in 5-10 minutes (if it is taking you significantly longer or shorter than this, you should change the level you are working at). When you have finished, you can check your answers by clicking on the purple ‘ANSWERS’ tab underneath.
YOU WILL THEN NEED TO USE THE REST OF YOUR SESSION TO COMPLETE THE DAILY MAIN TASK AS DETAILED ON THE TIMETABLE AND SUPPORT NOTES BELOW.
