Year 6 Daily 8 and Reasoning
In the Year 6 Maths class we are working on arithmetic skills; every day we start the lesson by completing 8 mixed questions in 10 minutes. The topics range from decimals to fractions to calculation using the four operations. We are developing fluency and speed by training our brains to move from one topic to another quickly. Please ask us what our score was every day - we are really proud of our progress.
Look at a Daily 8 from Ella-Mai's book - you can see the range of topics Ella-Mai tackles confidently. Her Next Steps are to remember to express fractions as mixed numbers.
Below is a photograph from Daisy's book showing her reasoning. She is able to explain how she works with fractions. Daisy's explanation is excellent because she uses mathematical vocabulary such as 'common factors' accurately.
