    If for some strange reason, these Year 6s have not been taught written methods, them please teach them ASAP!
    Otherwise, they might end up like the weak year 8s I'm teaching, who know what they have to do to solve a problem, then struggle to do the calculation mentally (eg 42 x 6), or 'do it' and get it wrong, when they would have been far safer writing a vertical multiplication!
