We would like to introduce you to our Visual Calculation Policy and Visual Fractions Policy. The policies have been developed specifically for our school's needs and shows the clear progression of calculations for addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions.
The visual posters take learners from each operation's practical starting points through to formal written methods. The methods follow a clear thought process and show visually how each method should be carried out. These posters are used in all our classrooms and children are able to access the level and method that they feel comfortable with.
We would ask that when you are supporting your child at home, that you use these methods. We understand they may not all be familiar to you and therefore, if you need any further support or explanation, please speak to your child’s teacher.
