Maths With Michael:
We understand that maths has changed over the years and the methods used today may be different to the ones you have used in school. Please see the link below for maths with Michael, which is a miniseries created by White Rose to support parents with the methods used in school. Presenter and teacher Michael Underwood will guide you through these methods. 

Episodes will give you an introduction to place value, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and algebra and each episode comes with a parent guide. It is an excellent opportunity to see the methods which we use in school.

Multiplication Long Term Plan:
In Years 2, 3 and.4 we have dedicated multiplication lessons. We do still encourage the children to be learning their tables at their own pace and therefore can be rehearsing others multiplication facts, but we will focus on a specific multiplication within these lessons. We will play games, use concrete resources as well as sing song to help us to learn these facts. 
Please see the long-term plan below.
