We cover a range of topics over the course of this year. We have already looked at place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and fractions. We approach our learning in a variety of ways, using apparatus, pictorial representation and the use of more formal methods.
Multiplication tables are important part of our maths lessons and we ask parents to help their children to practice these at home to gain fluency of recall. There are a variety of sites listed under the useful maths websites link that can help with this.
Mental arithmetic strategies can also be usefully practiced at home and the Topmarks site (address under the snowy day activities) is very helpful for this on a range of topics.
