Numeracy

General Ways to Help Outside of School:

  • Telling the time
  • Days of Week/Months of Year
  • Allow children to calculate shopping prices. Get them to work out the change. Allow them to complete the transaction. Can be done in restaurants, leisure activities etc.
  • When dividing up food discuss fractions (pizzas, cakes work very well)
  • How many…? Can be asked in range of circumstances; focus on +/-; use objects in the house
  • General x tables quick fire
  • Number bonds

Homework Books:

  • Introduction of crib sheets
  • Recognise that not all topics will yet have been covered

Teaching Number:

Key focus to any mathematics is the understanding of number. Pupils should be able to:

  • Read number
  • Understand what digits represent

Reading Number:

Work from the units’ column, sectioning the numbers into groups of 3. Build up the number gradually.

Eg. 4 5 2 8 3 1 9

4 5 2 8 3 1 9

4 5 2 8 3 1 9

4 5 2 8,3 1 9

4 5 2 8,3 1 9

4 5 2 8,3 1 9

4,5 2 8,3 1 9

4,5 2 8,3 1 9

Place Value:

See attached file to support with homework

Note: the decimal point is part of the place value table and does not move. Zero is a place holder.

Multiplication:

It is very important to know x table facts. These can be used with place value to form basis to other calculations.

The grid method is a clear way to ensure the understanding of multiplication.
