Maths for

The Transfer Test


(VIEW all our maths revision and practice tests for the Transfer Test.)


This Transfer test maths pack from Learning Together will provide suitable revision, practice and preparation for the 2018 Transfer Tests.

Maths for the transfer test - both AQE and GL (PPTC)- will be based on the Key Stage 2 Programme of Study for mathematics. This is the scheme of work that all children follow at primary school. Children need to have a sound knowledge of all aspects of maths and be able to handle number facts quickly and accurately. The level of maths that will be expected will be high but will not extend past the requirements of level 5 work.

AQE and GL Assessments

Both the AQE and GL (PPTC)  examination bodies base their maths questions on the same Key Stage 2 program of study. Questions will be based around the Attainment Targets of Shape and Space, Number, Measures, and Handling Data.

Shape & Space

To understand Shape pupils need to be able to:

• construct a range of regular and irregular 2-D shapes; classify these through examination of angles and sides; recognise line and rotational symmetry; reflect shapes in a line; explore tessellations; name and describe common 2-D shapes; begin to understand congruence in 2-D shapes; • construct 3-D shapes; investigate the number of faces, edges and vertices on these shapes; name and describe common 3-D shapes; explore the relationship between 2-D and 3-D shapes.

For Position, Movement and Direction they must understand:

• the notion of angle in the context of turning; recognise right angles; understand clockwise and anti-clockwise; know the eight points of the compass; use logo to understand movement and turning; be introduced to a programming language and use it to create pictures and patterns and to generate shapes;
• develop language associated with line and angle; recognise properties of acute, obtuse and reflex angles; investigate angles in triangles and quadrilaterals; measure and draw angles up to 360°;
• use co-ordinates to plot and draw shapes in the first quadrant.

Number

Understanding Number and Number Notation

Pupils should be able to:
• count, read, write and order whole numbers;
• develop an understanding of place value up to two decimal places; use this to multiply and divide numbers by 10 and 100;
• estimate and approximate to gain an indication of the size of a solution to a calculation or problem;
• understand and use vulgar fractions, decimal fractions and percentages and explore therelationships between them;
• understand and use negative numbers in context.

Patterns, Relationships and Sequences in Number

Pupils should be able to:
• explore and predict patterns and sequences of whole numbers; follow and devise rules for generating sequences;
• understand and use multiples and factors and the terms prime, square and cube; appreciate inverse operations;
• interpret, generalise and use simple relationships expressed in numerical, spatial and practical situations; understand and use simple function machines;
• understand that a letter can stand for an unknown number.

Operations and their Applications

Pupils should be able to:
• develop strategies to add and subtract mentally;
• know the multiplication facts up to 10 x 10;
• engage in a range of activities to develop understanding of the four operations of number; appreciate the use of brackets; add and subtract with up to two decimal places; multiply and divide ecimals by whole numbers; use these operations to solve problems.

Money

Pupils must understand and be able to:
• use the four operations to solve problems involving money;
• discuss the value of money, how to keep money safe, ways in which goods can be paid for and the need for budgeting;
• be able to plan and think ahead in terms of saving and spending money; prioritise spending with a limited supply of money; understand how to access best buys;
• discuss foreign currency including the Euro

Measures

Pupils should be enabled to:
• develop skills in estimation of length, ‘weight’, volume/capacity, time, area and temperature;
• appreciate important ideas about measurement, including the continuous nature of measurement and the need for appropriate accuracy;
• understand the relationship between units and convert one metric unit to another; use the four operations to solve problems;
• calculate perimeter and the areas and volumes of simple shapes;
• understand and use scale in the context of simple maps and drawings;
• recognise times on the analogue and digital clocks and understand the relationship between the 12 and 24-hour clocks; use timetables.

Handling Data

Collecting, Representing and Interpreting Data

Pupils need to 
• collect, classify, record and present data drawn from a range of meaningful situations, using graphs, tables, diagrams and ICT software;
• explain their work orally and/or through writing and draw conclusions;
• interpret a wide range of tables, lists, graphs and diagrams; create and interpret frequency tables, including those for grouped data;
• design and use a data collection sheet; interpret the results; enter information in a database or spreadsheet and interrogate and interpret the results;
• understand, calculate and use the mean and range of a set of discrete data.

Introduction to Probability

Pupils should be enabled to:
• become familiar with and use the language of probability;
• understand possible outcomes of simple random events; understand that there is a degree of uncertainty about the outcome of some events, while others are certain or impossible;
• place events in order of ‘likelihood’; understand and use the idea of ‘evens’ and know whether events are more or less likely than this.

Practical Mathematics

The nature of the Transfer Tests is such that aspects of the Programme of Study that involve certain types of activity, such as discussion or practical activities, will not be included. The use of the calculator will not be permitted in the tests.

Mathematical Skills

Mathematics skills need to be well mastered and good habits fostered regarding accurate and speedy working out of demanding maths problems. Sound knowledge and quick recall of table facts is very essential. They need to understand the four operations of number (add, subtract, divide and multiply) and their interrelationships and be capable of applying them quickly and accurately to a variety of mathematical problems.

Content 

This Learning Together transfer test Maths pack provides 10 practice papers with each paper containing 50 questions covering the above subject areas. A comprehensive glossary and answer booklet are  included. These Revision Booklets are designed to improve your child's skill level in the above topics and to allow your child to experience preparation for the transfer test in the security and comfort of their own home.
