 Author: Nella [ Wed Sep 02, 2020 12:26 pm ] Post subject: Re: Simplifying Fractions Simplifying fractions is part of the yr 6 curriculum so shouldn’t be in an 11+ test.If the pupil in question is in year 5 then I would have thought there would be no reason for the class teacher to raise it as an area of concern.
