Children have a maths (Numeracy) lesson every day. We teach Arithmetic, problem solving and reasoning. The children need to be able to apply the maths that they know, for example, if they know how to calculate a percentage, can they say what percentage of a class is boys if 35% are girls?

We have a calculation policy that shows which methods children should use. We know that these are quite often different to what parents did at school! As a result, we’ve made some videos showing you how to do each method. Make sure you know the name of the method that your child is learning (eg column method, grid method) and then watch the video so that you can help your child. Or get them to watch it if they’re stuck with their homework!
