    I use a problem off Nrich every Friday with my year 6s. Started using it in October and initially the children didn't like it as the answer wasn't instantly obvious and they had to think! It's taken alot of modelling from me but now they quite enjoy it and my HA children complete the problem before creating their own based on it for each other to solve. The first few times involved a lot of whole class work to solve the problem together in order for me to teach them the strategies and my lower group still need quite a bit of support to keep them going on the right track but they enjoy it and 95% of the time they get there in the end!
