Calculation Policies

 

Pupils are taught different mental and written methods according to the year group or level they are working at. The calculation policies below demonstrate the methods taught for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and show how they build upon each other year upon year.

 

Useful Websites

 

Playing online games can be a great way for children to practise and consolidate their skills. The ones listed below are particularly good:

 

https://www.mathsisfun.com/ - this website explains different topics very clearly and has some games for pupils to practise what they have learnt.

https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/subjects/zjxhfg8 - (Key Stage 1) this has videos to explain the topic and games to practise.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/maths/ - (Key Stage 2) this will give information about the topic and then has a quiz and game to practise.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Interactive.aspx?cat=8 - a search engine that is great for finding maths games. Select

 

Key Stage 1 or 2 and the area of maths you want to focus on.

There are also some amazing resources on the LGfL website, which your child has their own username and password to access. Ask your child's teacher for another copy if their login details have gone missing.

Maths at Home - aimed at parents, this has short videos explaining what your child is learning so you can better support them at home.

Busy Things - great games for each area of maths.

 

Homework

 

 

 

All pupils from Reception to Year 6 have their own DoodleMaths and DoodleTables account. Teachers assign tasks to embed the week's learning and pupils are expected to spend 10 minutes, 3 times per week completing their homework.

 

DoodleMaths:

  • has been proven to help children make big improvements in both their ability and confidence in maths - using it for 10 minutes a day has helped children make 3 months progress in just 1 month.
  • learns what your child’s strengths are and what they need to work on, then builds a programme just for them.
  • is fun and engaging!  

 

 Follow these steps to get started:

  • download the DoodleMaths and the DoodleTables apps (alternatively you can go to the website: www.doodlemaths.com)
  • ask your child to sign in, using their unique login details.
  • tap on the Grown Ups section and follow the instructions there to link yourself to your child.
  • login to www.parents.doodlemaths.com with your Grown Ups username and password and click on Monitor - Live so you can see how your child is doing as they complete their exercise.
  • download the Parent Connect app so you can see a snapshot of what your children are doing.

 

If you do not have internet access, please let your child's teacher know and we will ensure they have the opportunity to complete their homework at school.
