All you need to know about Maths

Thank you for continuing to support your child with their maths. We know it can be hard when the children sometimes come home and say, 'that's not how we do it at school!'

To help you we've made some videos of what the written calculation should look like, and added our calculation policies below. There is also some guidance on the language we use.

As always, if you have any questions about your child's maths learning, please do go and see your child's class teacher. Please follow these links for the videos and read the policies:

Y4,5,6 written addition:


Y5 written multiplication:


Y5 & 6 written subtraction
