These are very similar to the year 4 sheets, using all four operations, but with larger numbers.
The Operation box requires what method was used: addition, subtraction, multiplication or division.
The Method box requires how it was done; either mentally or on paper eg “I did this in my head because I know my 4 times table.”
The How box asks for the reason why the method was used: eg ” I divided by 4 because there were 4 equal chapters”.
It might be that children use a calculator if they have one available and there is no harm in this; the questions are designed to show what needs doing. If they don’t know what to do the calculator will be of no help!
