Primary percentages resources
This resource is aimed at Year 6 Expected and has been designed to give children the opportunity to consolidate the skills they have learned in the White Rose Maths Guidance and Examples Spring Block 2 – Percentages.
The questions are based on the ‘small steps’ that are addressed in the block, but are presented in a different way so children can work through the pack independently and demonstrate their understanding and skills. This resource is themed around giving children the chance to be entrepreneurs and make as much profit as possible.
You can find more Reasoning and Problem Solving resources designed to be used with the White Rose Maths Guide here.
Percentages that can be found using mental methods.
Same numbers used in increases and decreases so that some parts of the working out are common, showing how similar increases and decreases are.

This is a collection of great Arithmetic and Reasoning revision support to help Year 6 in their preparations for the upcoming SATs.
These are sets of arithmetic starters which I use daily with my current Year 6 class. I call these ‘Terrific Tens’ and we do them for 10 minutes a day at the start of each Maths lesson. I put three songs on Youtube for the children to listen to whilst completing the tests (the winners from each session then choose the next songs!) and depending on what I assess my class at and the difficulty of the paper, give them an amount of time to complete the page. I then model how to answer each question and the children mark their own. I do not collect the scores up as, at the start of the year, my children were nervous about their scores. However, I now find they are so enthusiastic about sharing their scores as they are proud of what they have achieved! My children absolutely LOVE these and since doing these each day, the results in our termly arithmetic test have significantly improved.
In this resource, there are 100 days worth of 10 arithmetic questions. On each page, there is a set of 10 arithmetic style questions which I have created myself by using the Maths objectives alongside examples of previous Arithmetic questions. These questions are mixed up, as they will be in the test they face next May. This helps the children to apply their knowledge. I have tended to focus on the more challenging questions (e.g. dividing fractions, mixed number subtractions etc…) rather than times tables, as this is what my class needed to ensure they are getting 35+ on every arithmetic paper.
I have also included an Arithmetic loop card game I have created which my children absolutely love!
This is a130 slide power-point presentation which I have developed for my class of Y6 children who are finding the Reasoning SATs papers a little tricky!
I was conscious that there is sometimes little room for Reasoning when so much of my lessons were skills based; this also reflected within my assessment papers.
My class now do ‘Maths Rocks’ every morning. Maths Rocks is between 3-7 Reasoning questions which my children complete on a daily basis. I have given them a new Maths Rocks book and they come in each morning with the power-point on the board. Independently, they work through each question. We then go through them together, I model the answer and we discuss any misconceptions. I don’t collect scores in, but the more children become confident with the style of question, the more willing they are to share their scores!
There are 130 pages to this presentation, each with between 3-7 questions on. The questions are a variety of questions about a mixture of subjects to ensure I am reinforcing the children’s learning.

This idea is from Craig Barton and is an excellent one (check them out his at website); essentially it is four questions based on the same information. There are four here which use ratio, Pythagoras, time, fractions, probability, percentages and measures as well as other topics. This really should create discussion and a deeper understanding of the topics covered on top of ensuring that students actually read the question. I hope these are worthy! I will be using these as starters or plenaries.
This is a choice of 4 different worksheets testing on the topic of percentages of amounts, through the mode of a function machine. Two of the worksheet are ‘Easy Questions’ whereas the other two worksheets are 'Hard Questions. For the easy questions students start with with a red grid in the central of the worksheet containing 9 different numbers, which is the input. They then need to find a percentage of all 9 of these numbers, such as finding ‘20%’ of the original numbers, obtaining an output number. This process is repeated four times, for four differing percentages which are both greater and smaller than 100%. The difficult worksheets differently start with output numbers, so students need to understand how to reverse the process, and to be able to divide by a multiplier ratehr than multiply by the multiplier. A resource which is ‘ready to go’, and both the easy and difficult worksheets are linked usefully by the same solutions. Please leave a review if you found this helpful.

This is a set of four activity sheets designed to familairise pupils visually with the concept of percentage meaning “out of 100”. The first sheet asks children to colour different percentages of a 100 grid and identify the percentage uncoloured.
The next three sheets presents children with various sized grids and asks them to colour different percentages of that grid. The percentages represented are 50%, 25% and 10%.
They then have to write a percentage fact to represent each colored grid.
The activity sheets are in pdf format and also Microsoft Publisher to allow for easy formating and customisation.
Thank you for your interest in my resources. I do hope you find them useful.
