    it appears that there is not much guidance for Level 6 teaching.

    Does anyone have any leads..maybe a workbook???

     Level 6, try KS3.. www.emaths.co.uk

    Also look at NC levels on the standards site in the UK. 

     Hope this helps

    a problem with using a ks3 paper rather than a purpose built ks2 level 6 paper is that the amount of extra knowledge, rather than higher ability in maths, can be overwhelming.

    This is both true, and a shocking indication of the ridiculousness of the system!

    But if they haven't got that breadth of knowledge they aren't really a Level 6, surely?

    If we are saying a child in primary is a level 6 then they have to "match" a child in secondary at the same level, in both breadth and depth of knowledge, rather than have a "primary level 6" and a "secondary level 6"

    You'd think, wouldn't you?  But all the evidence points to the contrary. And more to the point, QCA themselves told me that they made no effort to compare L5 at KS2 to L5 at KS3 when writing test papers, because they were based on different Programmes of Study and so were inherently different.

    The whole system is a joke!

    No wonder secondaries claim our levels are always "wrong"!

    Well,when I say my children are working at level 6 they have proved it in class and on both KS2 and Ks3  papers!

    me, i'm not that fussed about tests, but i were, what i would like would be a 5+ paper so that bright kids who get 99/100% at ks4 can strut their stuff without having to pretend they have the subject knowledge of ks3

    i know it's a moot point - we were divided on a previous thread between those who do ks3 work with bright y5/6's and those who like to tread the highways and by-ways of maths

    I have to say, I'm not convinced that even the KS3 papers are that good a reference for L6. The Y7 optionals in particular seem to have a relatively low threshold for achieving level 6 - and furthermore, offer a very limited evidence or experience of any real mathematics: Ma1!

    (And I speak as someone who makes very good use of Y7 tests to make good PM data results!)

    Which is of course why the government scrapped level 6 tests for KS2 about 10 years ago.  The level 6 in KS2 and KS3 simply do not equate!!!  Another ridiculous idea from the government.

    We had three children arrive with a teacher assessment of Level 6 this September.

    To put it bluntly, that wasn't right.

    One gained a Level 5B in his KS2 SATs Test.

    Another scraped into the 5A region by a mark.

    The last one wasn't close (93 marks) to being our highest scoring pupil in the tests, though he did get a 5A.

    This idea of Level 6 is just to shut up those absolutely foolish women who think their little darling is so talented that he must be above his classroom peers...

    These pupils might well have been able to do some of the Level 6 work, but obviously weren't fully capable of everything at Level 5.  And we've had more capable pupils in the past and these did score close to full marks on the KS2 test.

     we've had many pupils who've scored 98/99% at ks2 (there's almost always one daft arithmetical mistake - i think we had one 100% 2 years ago).  we never put them in for nor classify them as L6 - we might at most say 'elements of L6' (same for literacy)

    we prefer to do other stuff to stretch them - logic puzzles, history of maths, nrich-type stuff - and let you guys get on with the ks3 proper

    carmen - do you want to move towards L6/ks3, or would you like some alternative stuff?

    oh - brambo -  This idea of Level 6 is just to shut up those absolutely foolish women who think their little darling is so talented that he must be above his classroom peers... - this ain't funny at our end either - i swear i spend some parents evenings (i'm not a class teacher, just take specialist queries) wall-to-wall having my ear bent by these folk (one of worst at the moment is a dad, btw - but they are all parents of boys - hmmmm!)

    Wait for DM to pop on - he knows about L6 KS2 - he gave me some advice last year when my daughter was put in for it. The pass mark was interesting - in the trial papers the teachers were told that 50% was a pass for level 6 - when they did the paper they had to get 70%. My daughter narrowly missed it. (BTW we didn't pressurise for this - it was all the school's doing - I kept saying to the teacher - "What's the point, it's not a proper L6 anyway!?" - but she enjoyed doing the test booklets, so she did)
