Want to help your child with homework but unsure how we teach calculations?
Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6)
Every child in year 2-6 has an individual log-in to practise their multiplication tables on Times Tables Rock Stars. If your child has lost their log in or password request a new one from their teacher.
Yearly Times Tables Expectations
Pupils across Key Stage 2 who get quicker at times tables or get more answers correct get awarded with a certificate in celebration assembly.
Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2)
It means knowing all the ways to add to make a number and that this relates to subtraction. e.g. 6 + 4 = 10, 10 – 4 = 6, 4 + 6 = 10 and 10 – 6 = 4
We teach about the relationship between addition and subtraction at school.
At home, the main maths homework is to learn addition number stories. This will help your child’s maths skills throughout school and life.
Resources have been provided. Information on how to help your child is in this leaflet and we will track and reward your child as they learn these facts.
We focus on learning number stories by heart because it is a skill which they can build upon throughout school and later life, helping them to deal with harder maths.
