Please find below the Progression in Calculation policy for Albourne CE School. This shows the steps that your child will go through for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as their understanding develops and they move through the school.
For more information about what children are expected to know in each particular year group, visit the section labelled 'expectations of the new primary curriculum'.
Lots of our parents have sought advice on how to support their child at home with their Multiplication and Division skills, particularly with the Times Table test that has recently been introduced for Year 4 children.
As a school, we currently subscribe to 'Times Table Rock Stars' where teachers are able to individualise learning, and children can practise their skills in an exciting way!
Here is a link for other games that could support your child at home:
In recent years, teachers from Albourne joined the Maths Hub research project to trial the teaching of maths through the mastery approach. We now use this approach across the school. The information sessions explained how this works in practice at Albourne. Slides from this presentation can be accessed below.
During times when we were able to, we welcomed parents and families in to visit us during our math's sessions. Here are some comments from our parents:
'wonderful to watch how they all work in the class - very enjoyable. Great ideas for home.'
'Very impressed with the way the teaching in both classes I visited. the children were engaged and interested.'
'Very useful session which has been enlightening. It will be helpful to aid my child with his progression.'
'Brilliant presentation - well explained. Thanks to all the teachers for having us in their classrooms.'
