I have had a lot of requests from teachers asking if resources can be organised in terms of the Block and Unit Planning required by the Primary Framework for Teaching. This seems like a sensible idea and I have decided to start with Year 6 and with ordering decimals. As this will be the first full week of the summer term for most schools, it follows as Block A Unit 3 Week 1 in the planning. Just a small start but each week there should be a new year 6 activity for the Block and Unit plans.
Next week we have a re-inforcement page for the recently published worksheet on how to round numbers to the nearest 10 000. Useful as a homework activity or consolidation for those who are still unsure about how to do this.
I will also be publishing another in our series which looks at the order of calculating with multiplication and addition, suitable for Year 4 upwards. The rule is that multiplication should be worked out before the addition and in most of these questions that is fairly straightforward. However the questions towards the end are quite tricky.
