Hints and Tips

  • If your child is finding it difficult to understand the method at their Year group level, look to the year groups below, or even several year groups below. You may need to take it back to a practical level so they can understand the concept. Usually children find the understanding hard because they still need to be able to see and ‘visualise’ what the maths looks like. Encourage lots of talk between yourselves.
  • An interesting website to go on is youcubed.org Here go to the number tasks section and read an article called ‘fluency without fear.’ It explains how we can teach multiplication and times tables in way that does not rely on just memory. So for example we can know 7 x 6, if we know 5 x 6, and 2 x 6 and add the two together. This is where the importance of discussion comes in, and this method can be applied to any timetables fact.
  • Please don’t say ‘I was never good at Maths!’ We don’t often hear people say the same about reading. We need the children to hear positive messages about Maths. Actually most jobs do involve a lot of Maths skills, it is probably just not what we were tested on!

Within school we have our Calculation Policy, if you would like some practical help with your child’s maths homework.

Here is a copy of the Brackley Area Learning Partnership Calculation Policy. Within this document you will find lots of useful information about how the four main operations within maths are taught within each Year Group and Key Stage.
