I am an experienced year 6 teacher selling Maths and English resources for teachers looking for high-quality, cheap resources to save their valuable time.

Here are 31 mental maths starters which I used for my year 6 class. Each slide also has the answers so you can quickly check them. These are all geared towards the Arithmetic paper in the SATs and helping your class become fluent in these skills.
-converting improper fractions to mixed numbers
-finding equivalent fractions
-adding and subtracting fractions
-square numbers
-multiplying and dividing by 10,100 and 1000
-formal written method of multiplication
-multiplying decimals
-formal written method of division
-formal written method of subtraction
-multiplication fact questions
-simplifying fractions
-multiplying fractions
-comparing fractions
-adding and subtracting fractions
-dividing fraction
-multiplying fractions
-factors

This is a complete lesson on dividing and multiplying numbers by 10, 100 and 1000. It includes differentiated practice questions which can be done on whiteboards (with answers on a separate slide), a (differentiated) worksheet slide which you can print off or get your class to work from the board and choose their own level. The lesson also includes a slide with the answers to save our valuable teacher time. Why not get your class to self-assess at the end of the lesson?

This is a complete lesson that I gave to my year 6 class on rounding decimal numbers with up to 3 decimal places to the nearest whole, tenth and hundredth; it includes differentiated practice questions which can be done on whiteboards (with answers on a separate slide), a (differentiated) worksheet slide which you can print off or get your class to work from the board and choose their own level.
The lesson also includes a slide with the answers to save our valuable teacher time. Why not get your class to self-assess at the end of the lesson?
The lesson is differentiated three ways for lower attaining, middle attaining and higher.

This is a complete lesson on multiplying numbers by 10, 100 and 1000. I began with only multiplication and did the next lesson on dividing numbers by 10, 100, and 1000 (year6 class but could be used for year 5). It includes differentiated practice questions which can be done on whiteboards (with answers on a separate slide), a (differentiated) worksheet slide which you can print off or get your class to work from the board and choose their own level.

An entire lesson on subtraction that I have used to teach my year 6 class. The lesson has chances for the teacher to discuss and model the method, differentiated practice slides and a final slide which can be printed off as a worksheet. Finally, I have included challenge questions which can be displayed while the children are working independently and that they can complete when they have finished. I have included the answers on a separate slide which you can use to get your class to mark their own work or just make the teacher’s marking quicker!

This lesson offers your class practice for the different kinds of addition and subtraction that come up in the arithmatic SATs paper.
e.g. = 897 - 567 (equal on the left side)
567.8 + 34.98 =
10-8.66 =
You can discuss and model the different methods that your class can use to answer these questions (e.g. the number line)
The worksheets are differentiated three ways: LA=*, MA=** and HA= ***.
The answers are at the end of the word document to save time.

This lesson starts off with two opportunities to discuss the method of how to round numbers. The method I usually teach my class is to circle the place value column you are rounding to. For instance, if you are rounding 456 to the nearest ten , circle the 5. Then underline the number to its right and this will tell you whether you round up or down. The PowerPoint then moves onto differentiated practice questions (answers on next slide so you can check the children’s whiteboards quickly). The final slide has steps to success and a challange question for the class to complete when they have finished their work.
The worksheets are differentiated five ways. Two possible options for your LAs (indicated by ), one option for your MAs () and two options for your HAs ().
The answers are at the end.

This lesson begins with opportunities to discuss as a class how you would add/subtract 10, 100 and 1000 from a number without using the formal written method. It then has differentiated practice questions and the answers for your class to complete on their whiteboards. One penultimate slide can be printed off as a worksheet and has 3 levels (Blue for LA, Orange for MA and red for HA). The last slide is the answers to these questions for you to use or for you to get your class to self mark and save you some time!
While the class are working independently, I always display the third last slide that has the Learning Objective on it and two challenge questions for children to complete if they finish early and need an extra push.

This lesson begins with an activity to see if your year 6s can remember their place value columns by asking them a few questions like this one: What column in the nine in? (in 1,895,765)
It then moves onto ‘Guess my number’ where the teacher first models how to do it by saying: My number has 8 hundreds, 4 ten thousands, 2 millions, 7 units. What is my number? Can you write it in digits. To model this, the teacher could use a place value matt or suggest that the children write out the place value columns to support themselves. Challenge write the number in words. This is then followed by similar differentiated practice questions.
At the end of the PowerPoint, there is a slide which has three levels. Blue= LA, Orange = MA and Red= HA. There is another slide which is for children below LA. I usually print these sheets off and hand them out accordingly or allow the children to choose their level of confidence! The answers for each question are included on following slides.
While the class are working independently, I display the slide with the Learning Objective, spellings and challenge questions which they can complete when they have finished.

An entire lesson on adding and subtracting fractions that I have used to teach my year 6 class. The lesson has mental starter, chances for the teacher to discuss and model the method, differentiated practice slides and a final slide which can be printed off as a worksheet.

An entire lesson on finding the radius and diameter of circles used to teach my year 6 class. The lesson has chances for the teacher to discuss and model the method, differentiated practice slides and a final three slides which can be printed off as a worksheets, starting with LA, then MA and HA. Finally, I have included challenge questions which can be displayed while the children are working independently and that they can complete when they have finished.

This is is the third lesson I did with my year6 class on dividing fractions. It’s a PowerPoint lesson (which contains animated slides) plenty of visual explanations of dividing a fraction by a whole number (by finding the equivalent fraction) and also the quicker method. Prior learning recommended: equivalent fractions and putting fractions into their simplest form.
There are lots of differentiated practice questions with the answers of the next slide.
For independent work, there is a differentiated slide which can be printed as a worksheet or the pupils can work from the board (if you want to save paper!). While they are completing their independent work, you can display the slide with the challenge on it which they can complete when they’ve finished.
I have included the answers at the end to save teacher time -why not get your class to mark their own work!

This is is the fourth lesson I did with my year 6 class on dividing fractions.

This lesson includes a PowerPoint that has differentiated practice questions and the answers. The practice questions are multi-step word problems involving multiplication, addition, subtraction and one with multiplication of decimals (money context) and working out the change.
The worksheets are differentiated for HA, MA and LA with questions similar to those of the slides.

This is is the second lesson I did with my year6 class on dividing fractions.

This is an entire lesson on comparing fractions that I have used to teach my year 6 class in the Summer term as it is comparing improper fractions alongside proper.
