We currently have two Y6 classes of approximately 30 children. Currently the bottom end have been separated for Literacy and Maths to create a 'Lower Set' leaving 2 parallel groups of around 24 children. Our head has now decided that he wants to set 3 ways for maths by replacing the two parallel groups with a top and middle set. Personally I don't see the need at the minute for this as I feel I am meeting the needs of all within my group. Also the lack of a 'Level 6' (in old money) paper makes me question the need for a top set. What are other people doing in Year 6 with regard to setting in Maths and how do you feel about it?
