Numeracy skills are taught to all year groups every day in both direct lessons and discreetly across the curriculum. Pupils are taught a variety of topics based on key objectives. These objectives are taken from the New 2014 Curriculum.
Our teaching Sequences: What we do when:
The objectives from our four areas of learning (Number sense, additive reasoning, multiplicative reasoning and geometric reasoning are arranged into 14 sequences for each year group, each sequence lasts about 2/3 weeks. The four areas of learning are repeated at least three times throughout the year.
Children use a range of written methods for completing addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. Many of the methods the children use may be different to the ones that you were taught at school. Please refer to the school calculation policy and numeracy policy to view methods being used.
