The Arrowsmith teachers had a good chat about basic facts over the holidays and had a look at our results from term 1. We looked at everyone in year 5 as a group and everyone in year 6 as another group. We decided that we needed to work on our instant recall of our basic facts, that means answering a basic fact in 3 seconds or less. Below are our basic facts ladders, we are working on mastering the different skills in each stage. Year fives need to master up to stage five and year sixes need to master up to stage six this year.
