The strategies your child will be taught at school are somewhat different to the methods you were taught at school...have you ever wondered 'what is a numberline?!' or 'Partitioning?! What on earth does that mean?!'. If so, you are not alone!
We have created a parent Calculation Policy (Policies page) to help you help your child at home, without fear of over-complicating or confusing them.
In January 2015 we will be holding some parent workshops to demonstrate this policy- dates will be sent home before Christmas.
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to speak to your child's teacher if you have any questions!
