We have various resources to help our children and their families. We recognise the way we calculate might be different to what has been learnt by some of our parents and carers. Please click here for advice on the formal written methods we use to add, subtract, multiply and divide.
The vocabulary we expect our children to know and use confidently in their maths continues to develop. Please click here for a list of words which might be helpful to use with your children.
You might find some of the questions in these real-life examples useful to explore with your children at home. There is guidance to help decide which year group each set of questions is appropriate for. Please ask in school for any help or support you need.
Our Maths Blast short tests are designed to help children develop their confidence to be fluent mathematicians. Knowing and retrieving basic facts quickly is still the best way to be able to answer more complicated questions correctly. children need to answer EVERY question correctly in a short time before they move onto the next sheet.
