Welcome to our Maths Page
Psalm 90:12 'So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom'
We hope the information here will be of use to you when helping your child with their homework.
Our calculations policy has been reviewed in line with the 2014 National Curriculum and Lancashire's recommendations.It is vital that the methods we teach in school are reinforced at home and that children are not confused by being taught alternative methods: such as those that we as adults may have learned in our school days. If you have any questions or need clarification about the methods, please do not hesitate to come in and ask. We appreciate some methods are very different! Or, as an alternative, why not ask your child if they can teach you - being able to explain develops their own understanding and reasoning skills.
Please spend a little time with your child each day ensuring they know their number bonds (KS1) and times tables to 12x12 (KS2) as knowing these are key to success in Maths.
One further way in which you can help your child on a regular basis is to discuss Maths in every day life. It is important that children see the relevance of the subject and see mathematical thinking in context.
If you would like to come in to talk to the children about how you use Maths in your job/career, we would love to hear from you.
