It is designed to:
Ensure a commonality of approach across the school.
Aid transition between stages as understanding develops.
Enable children to progress onto formal written methods as understanding develops.
Clarify the layout of calculations (and the exact recording of these) across the school.
Enable children to appropriately record for understanding using the most efficient written method.
The calculation policy is organised into stages which children progress through as their understanding develops. This enables children to be moved onto the next stage as soon as they are ready, or work at a lower stage until they are secure enough to move on.

http://fileynew.dialsolutions.net/1509Sun, 19 Oct 2014 23:00:00 GMTSCRATCHYou may have heard that ICT is changing to Computing in the new curriculum. One of the changes this will have is that computer programming will become an important part of the new curriculum. What you may not know, is that we already do a great deal of programming in school and one of our favourite resources is Scratch! By using Scratch you can program games, animations, quizzes and puzzles. You can even import your own sounds and graphics!
If you fancy having a go - or perhaps you just want to continue with some of the work you've started at school - you can download the programming language using this link:

Below are links to some of the resources we use in school. Children can download these resources to practice their skills at home.

Click below to download the setup file. This is a free version of LOGO which you may use at home without limitation.

Whilst we use Photoshop in school, you can download a very similar program called GIMP for use at home. We do use GIMP at school too, so have a play and see what you can do!
You can download the latest version of Gimp here: http://www.gimp.org/

They include 100 squares and tables squares to help your child. There are different mats suitable for different abilities, so choose one that your child feels is most useful for them.

For some time now, an internet resource, MATHLETICS, has been available for your children to use at home and school. It is proving to be very popular and children are improving their mathematics skills as a result.
Some children have told me that they are experiencing difficulties getting it to work at home. Below is a link to a technical guide to (hopefully) solve any problems. Please get in touch with school if we can help further. Please encourage your child to use this resource.

Below is a link to the presentation I used which takes you through some examples, step by step. When you open the presentation, click 'Read Only', as I protected against accidental changes you might make on your copy.
If anyone would like any help with mathematics, get in touch with me. (Mr. Grice) A few people mentioned that they would like another session.

Children should try to learn their multiplication tables and division facts as early as possible. We recommend learning these by heart. Chanting them out loud definitely helps!
Use www.teachingtables.co.uk and www.sumdog.com to help once your child is chanting confidently.
Try this link to help your child practise their mental maths targets or KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts). http://www.conkermaths.org/cmweb.nsf/products/conkerkirfs.html Once there, choose a heading on the tabs, then pick an activity.
Divisibility Facts:
Use this table to learn whether a number will be divisible by our times tables.
Note: 7 does not have an easy test!
Divisibility Tests
Example
A number is divisible by 2 if...
the last digit is 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. (EVEN!)
OR can be halved to give an integer (whole number)
168 is divisible by 2 since...
the last digit is 8.
A number is divisible by 3 if...
the sum of the digits is divisible by 3.
168 is divisible by 3 since...
the sum of the digits is 15 (1+6+8=15), and 15 is divisible by 3.
A number is divisible by 4 if...
the number formed by the last two digits is divisible by 4. (remember 20, 40, 60, 80, 00)
OR can be halved twice to give an integer (whole number)
316 is divisible by 4 since...
16 is divisible by 4.
A number is divisible by 5 if...
the last digit is either 0 or 5.
195 is divisible by 5 since...
the last digit is 5.
A number is divisible by 6 if...
it is divisible by 2 AND it is divisible by 3.
(Do the 2 and 3 tests on the number)
168 is divisible by 6 since...
it is divisible by 2 AND it is divisible by 3.
A number is divisible by 8 if...
the number formed by the last three digits is divisible by 8.
OR can be halved three times to give an integer (whole number)
7,120 is divisible by 8 since...
120 is divisible by 8.
A number is divisible by 9 if...
the sum of the digits is divisible by 9.
549 is divisible by 9 since...
the sum of the digits is 18 (5+4+9=18),
and 18 is divisible by 9. (1+8=9)
A number is divisible by 10 if...
the last digit (units) is 0.
1,470 is divisible by 10 since...
the last digit is 0.
