Just wanting to gauge where others are at with their Year 6 classes in arithmetic currently, as I'm a bit worried mine are behind and now we're so far into the year I'm going to get criticised for it. I know that last year I managed to get in FDP as well before Christmas. A significant proportion of my class (about two thirds) either can't use long multiplication at all or aren't secure in it. Slightly over a third can't use short division accurately. Most of the class struggle calculating with decimals in all four operations. The range of mental strategies and understanding of inverses is limited (which is why I'm only just starting to address the above multiplication and division issues as I've been working on these for addition and subtraction). I'm not following White Rose, but am using a similar blocked approach and incorporating a variety of contexts with teaching calculation strategies (so planning to cover area and volume with multiplication for example).
