This year we have updated our Calculations Policy in line with our Mastery Curriculum. Please see the attachement below for the full Policy.
The Calculations Policy sets out the guidelines that teachers follow in teaching the four calculations to children. As the children progress through the school, they will learn new ways of solving problems using a variety of different methods. This is to give all children the opportunity to find a process that works best for them.
Once children have understood the key pronciples of calculations, they then need to apply their knowledge to problem solving activities. These could be in the form of a SAT style question, a practical game or a real life problem.
