Supporting Written Calculation at Home

Supporting children with calculation at home can be difficult as often the methods they try to show you are different to those we learnt as children.  At South Bersted we follow a structured approach to calculation that supports children in understanding the process before ultimately being able to calculate using an efficient formal method.

By following the links here you will find grids that show the expectation for each year group from the New National Curriculum 2014.  After each grid you will find illustrations of the different methods which were designed to be pupil friendly and are used to support the children’s learning in class.

We hope you find these useful, if you have any further questions please talk to your child’s class teacher.
