We ensure that we use concrete resources to support children in using new concepts before we start to represent our work in the pictorial and abstract representations. Please follow the link below for further information on our calculation policy.
In addition to Natty numbers we also use Maths Blast.
Maths Blast is taught 3 x weekly in addition to a maths lesson. We recap prior learning, to consolidate key skills such as calculation and to allow additional time to work on areas which need improvement.
The learning is organised using the headings: last week, last month, last term, we need to improve.
These questions can be written on a whiteboard or on sheets and pupils can answer the questions on whiteboards, on a sheet or in the back of maths books as appropriate. Pupils in Year 6 may also have questions from across the KS2 curriculum and so may not solely use the headings of: last week, last month, last term, we need to improve.
