Y5/6 basic skills maths mats and answers x 30

I have made these maths mats to use with my Year 6 class during focus task/basic skills time.

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.
