We understand that many parents have concerns that we teach maths differently from when they were in school - well, we trust these videos are the solution!  The maths videos below explain the methods we use for teaching addition, subtraction, multiplication and division at various stages - we hope these help you to support with maths at home. 
Addition The Expanded Method
Addition Compact Method
Subtraction The Expanded Method

Multiplication The Expanded method
Multiplication The Grid Method

Division Chunking Method
Division The Short Method

We hope to have more videos published soon - including some suitable for infants using Numicon

You will have noticed that we have had to 'raise the bar' with homework to come into line with the new raised expectations of New Curriculum and Ofsted.  This may come as a surprise to children and parents in Y3 in particular who are less used to the demands of homework.   In the future we will meet with parents of Y2 children in July to talk about transition into the junior department.  We have put this site together to help parents support their children with homework and to make clear our expectations as we try to balance the tightrope of letting children be children and the demands of the curriculum and Ofsted. 

 

We greatly appreciate the support of our parents in this learning partnership.  Thank you!

 

Homework Clubs are available during the week for children who are not able to complete the homework at home or who need a little extra help and support from the teacher.  These generally run during lunch break.
