To help our children to achieve all they can in maths we are now following an approach called Visual Maths.
"Visual Maths™ is an extremely effective and successful approach to the teaching and learning of Mathematics.
It has consistently increased pupils’ understanding, achievement and attainment. Pupils have a greater confidence, are more self-motivated and see themselves as successful learners."
Visual Maths follows a set of pathways for place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions with the children working their way along the pathways, gaining confidence and knowledge as they do.
These pathways form our calculation policy.
Below are some useful documents which you can download. They will give you more information about the maths we do in school and what you can do to help at home. There are also some links to useful websites which provide some extra information and ideas, as well as games you can play online.
As always, if you have any particular questions about how you can help your child with maths which aren't answered here you are always welcome to speak to your child's teacher.
