I have a child in year 4 who is now on the new maths curriculum. She has not covered topics that my year 6 child had done by this stage. When I read the new national curriculum maths document I realise that this might be because they are following the year 4 curriculum and nothing from the year above.
She was 4c under the old curriculum at the end of year 3 and year 4 is feeling like a going backwards year. Should it be like this?
I'm in similar situation with my dd in year 5. She is one of the brightest in her class but instead of her getting harder work she now has to help the other children in her class once she finishes her work. I've heard they will no longer work to level 6 but try and get the whole class up to level 5.
I'm so unhappy with the whole schooling issue at the moment
