Maths Visual Calculation Policy

Welcome to our Visual Calculation Policy! The policy has been developed specifically for our children’s needs and shows the clear progression of calculations for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. 


Each visual poster clearly demonstrates the learning journey from mental strategies through to formal written methods. The strategies demonstrated are the ones your children are using throughout their Maths learning. When supporting your children with their home learning, we ask that you use these strategies, to avoid confusing them, even though they may possibly not be the ones you are familiar with. If you need any further support, please don’t hesitate to ask either your child’s teacher or myself. We are more than happy to help!


There will be sessions throughout the year for parents to discuss these strategies and maybe learn new ones!


Please come and chat about your child’s Maths.
