Maths Calculations Progression

There are many types of calculation strategies that children can use to support their maths learning and problem solving. It can be easy to move children onto the more formal methods too quickly, before they have secure understanding of the concepts and processes. Therefore, at St James' we have carefully mapped out progression through calculation strategies to ensure that pupils build on their knowledge and skills in a systematic way. 

If you are a parent of a child in our school, you will hopefully find our progression documents helpful for supporting your child's maths learning at home.
