Many parents like to support their children in developing their written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We often hear from parents who are not sure of the way we teach these; usually accompanied by the comment 'That's not how we did it when I was at school.'
Our policy for written methods is designed to allow the child to build upon what they already know as well as ensuring that all children learn in the same way. We have produced a guide for parents which you can download by clicking on the link below. If you are unsure about any of it, please contact your child's teacher at the school.
