 Maths Calculation Guidance

We have created a ‘jargon-free’ explanation of the maths written methods taught in school, in order to help you support your children at home. The new curriculum encourages moving onto formal methods as soon as children are able, however please be aware that some children will need apparatus (e.g cubes) and images to support their understanding.  If you are unsure, please contact your child’s class teacher.
