Math’s Calculation Policies
Teachers at Langmoor follow the 2014 National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 and 2 and ‘Development Matters’ in the EYFS.
The Aims of our teaching and learning is that ALL pupils:
Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practise so that they are able to recall and apply what they have learnt quickly and accurately.
Are able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations and developing an argument, justification or proof, using mathematical language.
Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems.
We work with schools within our local ‘Family of Schools’ to share good practise and develop a common calculation policy to ensure that the same calculation methods are taught across all schools to ensure better transition to Year 6 at Gartree, where the children will sit their KS2 SATS tests.
Please see our new calculations policy detailed below for each year group.
