Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. At Lyme we follow the DfE National Curriculum Programme of Study.
The maths calculation policies which can be accessed via the links below show you the methods we use to teach addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
If you are helping your child and follow these guidelines and strategies, you can't go wrong or confuse the children.
We appreciate everything you do to support your child and any practice of these 4 rules helps.
