How do we teach calculation at John Blandy?
We are often asked this question! We put on a parent calculation workshop earlier in the year which was well attended and which parents found very useful and informative. How you were taught to add, subtract, multipy and divide is very different to how we teach your children today!
Below is a copy of our calculation policy for parents- we hope this will be a handy guide for you so you know what your child means when they talk about 'numberlines' or 'chunking'. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or Mrs Elliott- our Maths Leader.
