You are aiming to teach all Year 5 children age-related expectations by the end of the year. But what are the basic skills that you can't let them leave your class without?
Hamilton's 'Go to the Wall' skills are the heart of what enables children to become successful in maths. They are the building blocks of maths without which children will be blocked from making further progress. All children need to work towards age-related expectations throughout the year. But you need to be sure that children are confident in these 'Go to the Wall' mathematical skills before year-end. EVERY child should possess ALL these ground-level skills as they leave Year 5.
We strongly recommend that you ensure that your children fully master these skills by tracking them through the year.
