Summarising Pupil W's attainment in number and algebra
Pupil W is beginning to demonstrate a few aspects of level 5, for example in his work with algebraic expressions and his efficient, compact non-calculator methods for adding, subtracting and multiplying two-digit and three-digit numbers. However, his performance in number and algebra still fits best with the level description for level 4, and his teacher describes it as high level 4. To consolidate level 4 and progress into level 5, he needs to develop his understanding of equivalent fractions to help him order a wider range of fractions for example. He needs to extend his written calculation methods to decimals and begin to solve problems involving simple ratio.
