Children have a maths (Numeracy) lesson every day. There is a strong focus on basic skills, such as knowing their number bonds to 10 in Reception, or learning all the times tables by Year 4, The children also need to be able to apply the maths that they know, for example, “My age this year is a multiple of 8. Next year it will be a multiple of 7. How old am I?”
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! We have attached the three policies (addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, and place value) to this page. Have a look, they explain very clearly how we do things.
