    More of a concern to me was the discussion in the preamble about adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions… I know many teachers in the primary sector who wouldn’t be able to do that let alone teach it. The further up you go, the more insane it becomes. Using a pair of compasses is not a high priority in Year 6 even right now as it has never been needed to be done in a Year 6 SAT test… I suspect that won’t be the case in future…
