Across Years 1 and 2, the children will be taught a range of strategies in Maths lessons and Mastering Number sessions to ensure they are fluent in their recall of addition and subtraction facts. They will then be able to apply these into different Maths problems and contexts. .

Support at home

 To support the understanding of Maths, we are beginning to create Videos which explain our written methods.
