Transition to further study
Keeping Year 6 pupils motivated in their maths learning during the transition to Year 7 can be challenging, but we’ve got plenty of ways to help you.
Key Stage 2-3 Transition webinars
If you’re looking for extra support to help your Year 6 class as they make this journey, watch these webinars on Supporting Key Stage 2 to 3 Transition in Maths:
Calculator Crunch… it’s fun and it’s free!
Our Calculator Crunch programme is a fun way to engage Year 6 pupils with maths whilst also developing their confidence with calculators so they’re ready for maths at secondary school. The activities provide extra practice for Year 6 and 7 pupils in key areas of the maths curriculum.
Running over nine days each summer, each morning we release a new challenge on Twitter and on this webpage, along with a set of home learning resources.
Parents and carers can use the challenge activities with their children at home, and you can incorporate them into work you’re setting for your pupils, either in school or remotely.
There’s also a template you can use to create certificates for students who take part, to award their achievements.
