What are people doing in Y6 maths boosters for HAP pupils?
This is a general help forum - for those having problems using the site for example.
Try posting in the Primary forum where you may get more responses to your query.
Can I say that what I'd like you to do in maths is to make sure they are utterly and completely secure in their use of 4 function arithmetic with up to six digits (because less than that will mean they don't get enough practise), decimals and most especially fractions.
When you're doing shape & space, etc., make sure there are a lot of examples with fractional lengths so areas require multiplication/division of fractions.
Lack of fluency with fractions, itself dependent on times tables, is a huge barrier to progression in secondary.
