Maths at Bagthorpe

The way in which maths is taught, has changed very much during the past 20 years, meaning that the methods most of us are familiar with, from our schooldays are, in some cases, very different to those that our children use!  The thinking behind the new methods, is to help the children understand what they are doing, so that their learning makes sense.  We have written a school Calculation Policy, which shows in detail, the methods we use.  Of course, if you'd rather speak to your child's Class Teacher, they will be happy to explain any of these methods to you.
