How children learn maths at Holyoakes

At Holyoakes, our children learn lots of different ways to find their answers to calculations in their math sessions. In the younger years, they will spend much of their time practically working with 'real objects' or maths equipment, such as counting beads, number rods and Numicon. Once children are confident with using practical methods they will then begin to use written methods to find their answers. Written methods change and progress alongside the children's learning as they move through school. Our calculation policy will show you how children learn to calculate at Holyoakes, alongside the year group that they may be introduced to a different working out method, if they are ready. We hope that this helps you support your child with their work at home.
