I have made these maths mats to use with my Year 6 class during focus task/basic skills time. I wanted a way to keep them thinking about key concepts so I plan on using these once or twice a week to keep refreshing their memory. The mats cover areas such as the 4 operations, written methods, problem solving, fractions, decimals, percentages, time, area, perimeter, volume, shape, converting measures, algebra, angles and roman numerals, making them ideal for SATs revision or homework. The maths mats come with a full set of answers for easy marking.
