Maths Long Term Plans:
Support for Parents
This is the calculation policy we follow as a school for addition and subtraction, and multiplication and division. This demonstrates and explains the range of equipment your child we become confident using throughout their Maths education. It also models and explains the calculation strategies we teach at different ages. It is important your child is secure and confident in their age requirements. We encourage you not to move onto contents from a higher year group as it is proven that children’s depth and secure knowledge gives the best long term outcomes.
Knowledge Organisers capture what children will learn over the course of a normal year in school. At the moment, you may find that your child is learning things from the year group before and their current year group as we continue to mitigate the impact of two large chunks of time with remote learning. These may help you to understand the range of Maths your child will cover, and help you support this with continued learning opportunities at home.
In this letter – Maths Fluency Project – parent letter – we explain a new Maths project we have devised at school to improve the fluency in which the children handle numbers and calculating. Under recommendation from The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics, we have devised a systematic approach to ensure that children have exposure to, and fluency in, their recognition and recall of basic facts. This will ensure that children have the necessary skills to calculate accurately and apply this thinking in other contexts.
