Our Calculation Policy has been developed by White Rose Maths and meets the expectations of the National Curriculum and the learning needs of our children at Ropley School. The policy has been organised by 'Addition and Subtraction' and 'Multiplication and Division'. It is grounded in the principles of skill development and 'mastery' and not about moving the children onto the next method as soon as they can do the one before. Our calculation policies are attached if you would like to see them.
Please see your child's teacher if you have any questions.
A number of parents have shown an interest in NUMICON and its potential for using at home to support children's mathematical thinking and understanding. NUMICON is a multi-sensory approach to teaching mathematics and designed to help children understand connections between numbers. Through the multi-sensory activities and mathematical language of NUMICON your child will develop the understanding and skills that underpin their later understanding of number.
