The maths section may have shorter and longer, more word-based questions.

**Mental Maths –** Quick calculations – mainly using numbers only.

**Problem Solving** – Questions which are centred around words, which students need to understand and use the correct information to then answer the questions.

The questions may have multiple choice answers for each question.

Problem solving if often a skill which children find more difficult as it involves a number of stages. But don’t panic.

**Notes on things to remember about the Maths section:**

- We cover some year 6 topics to ensure students will be able to answer the additional challenging questions.
- Students should know and recall number facts.
- Students should know times tables fluently.
- Students need to be able to translate questions which are predominantly words into a number.
- Students need to check that answers are viable and roughly make sense.
