Year 5 Arithmetic Workout

1000s of arithmetic questions for year 5 at your fingertips! The spreadsheet has 10 individual arithmetic workouts that can be randomised to give you an unlimited number of combinations. This means it can be used over and over again throughout the year. A great way of getting pupils to practise their arithmetic skills and aid with retention.

Each “workout” also generates an answer sheet for easy marking or (preferably) self-assessment. This is a must have resource that prepares pupils for the year 6 arithmetic test and a massive time saver

Objectives Covered:

Count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1,000,000
Interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers, including through 0
Add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods (columnar addition and subtraction)
Add and subtract numbers mentally with increasingly large numbers
Multiply numbers up to 4 digits by a one- or two-digit number using a formal written method, including long multiplication for two-digit numbers
Multiply and divide numbers mentally, drawing upon known facts
Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a one-digit number using the formal written method of short division and interpret remainders appropriately for the context
Multiply and divide whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1,000
Recognise and use square numbers and cube numbers, and the notation for squared (²) and cubed (³)
Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number [for example, 2/5 + 4/5 = 6/5 = 1 1/5 ]
Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, and denominators that are multiples of the same number
Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams
Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = 71/100 ]
Recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to ‘number of parts per 100’, and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal fraction
Solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents of 1/2 , 1/4 , 1/5 , 2/5 , 4/5 and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25
