# Percentages (Year 6)

In KS2 Maths, we'll learn about percentages in a fun way! Imagine you have a big cake, and we cut it into slices. That's like percentages - parts of a whole!

In Year Six, we'll be like maths superheroes! We'll change decimal numbers into percentages and back again. We'll even know that a third is about 33%! So, if a cake is cut into three equal parts, one part is around 33%!

Percentages are cool! Adults might talk about a 5% pay rise. That means getting 5p extra for every £1 earned. And if they mention 10% inflation, it's like prices going up by 10p for every £1 spent!

Let's be percentage experts! Take our fun quiz to see how much you've learned about percentages in KS2 Maths.
