Consolidation Pack

Consolidation Pack

This resource is aimed at Year 6 Expected and has been designed to give children the opportunity to consolidate the skills they have learned in Spring Block 1 Decimals. The questions are based on a selection of the same ‘small steps’ that are addressed in the block, but are presented in a different way so children can work through the pack independently and demonstrate their understanding and skills.
