Numeracy:

  • We encourage children to use the methods that they are taught in previous classes . Standard written methods are consolidated.
  • Children should now be able to recall quickly any times table fact.  Accuracy and speed of times tables are extremely important and should be revised as often as possible. Times tables knowledge in important in underpinning all aspects of mathematical knowledge needed in this class.
