On this page I will be adding lots of information (and hopefully some video clips) to show you different methods we use to teach the four operations in mathematics and also what vocabulary is appropriate for each year group.


Place Value and Number


In our first maths unit of the term we have been ben learning about large numbers and what each digit in these numbers represents.


We have partitioned numbers into their different parts

eg: 234,690

200,000 + 30,000 + 4,000 + 600 + 90


Created numbers on a Place value chart with counters and used number lines to round numbers to the nearest group of 10, 100, 1000, 10,000, and 100,000.


We also used Part Whole Models to represent numbers in different parts.

Addition and Subtraction

In year 5 and 6 we try to use the most efficient methods to solve addition and subtraction calculations.

Below are some of the strategies we use.
