Maths Calculations Policy

We hope you will find this page helpful to find out how mathematics is taught across the school, which calculation methods are used and how you can support your child in their learning at home. Our Maths Calculation Policy Overview below sets out the mental and written calculation methods taught in each year group for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

 

Maths Calculations Policies

Our Calculations Policies below set out, with examples, the mental and written methods taught through Key Stage 2 for addition and subtraction, including vocabulary and opportunities for mastery. We hope that these will be very useful documents to support learning at home. Please click on the links below to the 'Addition' and 'Subtraction' pages, where you will find videos that demonstrate all the strategies taught, with sound tracks provided by our wonderful children.

Updated Calculations Policies and maths videos for Multiplication and Division will be updated in due course.
