We have created a 3 step approach to teaching mathematics - ‘Try it, Apply it, Explain it’. This approach develops the 3 stages in the mathematics curriculum —’fluency, application and reasoning’.
‘Try it’ aims to develop the fluency of different procedures for various types of calculations.
‘Apply it’ aims for the children to apply their procedural knowledge when solving problems.
‘Explain it’ is used to encourage the development of children’s reasoning skills by proving their answers using a resource.
We have put together some resources for parents and carers to help their children at home with Mathematics. Please refer to our Calculations Policy for further guidance. Below is a link to our Home Learning page where you will find Maths games for your child to practice their skills.
