To help you with your teaching, we have created these Summer 1 Arithmetic Tests for Year 6, which are differentiated six ways, and cover all of the national curriculum objectives from Summer 1, all the previous terms, and some of the Year 3 and Year 4 objectives. They're a great way to identify any gaps in our class's knowledge, so enjoy.

- Add and subtract numbers mentally, including: three-digit number and ones; three-digit number and tens; three-digit number and hundreds
- Solve problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value, and more complex addition and subtraction
- Find 1,000 more or less than a given number
- Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate
- Use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1; dividing by 1; multiplying together three numbers
- Multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout
- Add and subtract numbers mentally with increasingly large numbers
- Add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods (columnar addition and subtraction)
- Recognise and use square numbers and cube numbers, and the notation for squared (2) and cubed (3)
- Multiply and divide numbers mentally drawing upon known facts
- Multiply and divide whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1,000
- 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
- Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number
- Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = 71/100]
- Solve problems involving number up to three decimal places
- Multiply multi-digit numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long multiplication
- Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context
- Use their knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the four operations
- Add and subtract fractions with different denominators and mixed numbers, using the concept of equivalent fractions
- Multiply simple pairs of proper fractions, writing the answer in its simplest form [for example, 1/4 × 1/2 = 1/8]
- Divide proper fractions by whole numbers [for example, 1/3 ÷ 2 = 1/6 ]
- Identify the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1,000 giving answers up to three decimal places
- Use written division methods in cases where the answer has up to two decimal places
- Solve problems involving the calculation of percentages [for example, of measures, and such as 15% of 360] and the use of percentages for comparison
