Extending reading and maths for gifted children in years 5/6

    Hi everyone,
    Just looking for advice from any year 5/6 teachers as to how they extend children who are currently working at a high level in both reading and maths - seperately.
    I am a year 5/6 mixed class teacher and have just been given the role of giften and talented co-ordinator for next year. Basically we have quite a few children working at level 5 early on in year 5 within reading and have children going in to year 6 who are already working at the high end of level 5 in maths. My task is to find and introduce provision particularly for these areas.
    How do people out there approach this issue of reading? Clearly they can all read and infer well - but alot of ours stagnate once they achieve a 5C.
    Also with the maths, if we have children already working at 5B/5A going into year 6 - what provision do people have in place for this? Are there Level 6 teaching resources available? I'm aware of the level 6 tests which I'd like to be the end point for these children next year.
    I've a very diverse class from children working at level 2 right the way through to the types of children mentioned above. I'm sure many of you also are in similar situations so looking forward to learning a few things!
    Thanks in advance!
