Supporting Maths at home

HOW WE TEACH ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION

As many parents often point out, the ways that maths is taught today is different to how it used to be taught in the past.

The link below will take you to our calculation policy. This shows the progression of methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. As you will see, maths is taught using a ‘Concrete, Visual, Abstract’ approach. This enables children to explore strategies both practically and visually before using written methods. They can then develop their skills further by using reasoning skills to apply their calculations to solving a range of problems.
