Heathrow Primary School

Year 6


This term, Year 6 have been working hard to improve their arithmetic and reasoning skills involving place value, calculations and fractions. Mr Wade's group have been mastering the four calculations and this week have moved on to division, beginning with short division. They have been using their times tables skills to become more efficient with their answers as well as identifying mistakes in calculations to improve their reasoning. Mrs Hayer's group have been simplifying, comparing and ordering fractions and have now begun work on adding and subtracting fractions, solving some real-life problems related to this. Miss Moody's group have shown an excellent understanding of calculating fractions, including calculations that involve more than one operation, where they have had to use BODMAS to complete these correctly. The children have now moved on to solving some tricky reasoning problems related to these concepts and have impressed Miss Moody with their explanations as to how these problems have been solved.
