Our Aim By the end of key Stage 2, all children should be able to use an efficient written method for each operation with confidence and understanding. By the end of key Stage 2, all children should be able to use an efficient written method for each operation with confidence and understanding.

Prior Knowledge Oral and mental work in mathematics is essential, particularly so in calculation. Early practical, oral and mental work must lay the foundations by providing children with a good understanding of how the four operations build on efficient counting strategies and a secure knowledge of place value and number facts.

Progression towards a compact (formal) written method 1Establish mental methods, based on a good understanding of place value in numbers. 2Solve calculations in a horizontal format. 3 Children set out written calculations, initially using expanded layouts that record their mental methods. 4As children become more confident, they refine the written record into a more compact and efficient method. 5Extend to larger numbers and to decimals. (Children may initially need to return to a more expanded layout.)

Addition Stage 1 – numbered lines counting on in ones. Stage 2 – Empty number lines Bridging to ten Bridging to ten Partitioning Partitioning Adding larger numbers Adding larger numbers – Partitioning (‘exploding’ number sentences) Stage 3 – Partitioning (‘exploding’ number sentences) Stage 4 – expanded notation in columns Stage 5 – compact column method

Subtraction Stage 1 – Numbered lines counting back in ones. Stage 2 – empty number lines Bridging to ten Bridging to ten Partitioning Partitioning Subtracting larger numbers Subtracting larger numbers Stage 3 – Use number line to count up (useful for ‘find the difference’ and finding change). Stage 4 – Expanded partitioning Stage 5 – compact decomposition

Multiplication Stage 1 – Repeat addition on a number line. Stage 2 – Partitioning using known facts. Stage 3 – Grid method. Stage 4 – Expanded layout. Stage 5 – compact method.

Division Stage 1 – Repeat subtraction on a number line. Stage 2 – repeat subtraction on a number line finding remainders. Stage 3 – Partitioning into ‘known’ facts. Stage 4 – Chunking. Stage 5 – Bus stop.

‘Build on what pupils already know, understand and can do. Pupils should not be taught to use a compact method if their understanding and recording of mental methods is not secure. When a ‘taught’ method does not build on pupils’ previous understanding, then the various stages of the calculation will be difficult to reproduce and errors will result’ Key Stage 3 Strategy Key Stage 3 Strategy

Key Messages Consistency of approach is crucial to children’s understanding of written calculations Consistency of approach is crucial to children’s understanding of written calculations If children are introduced to compact methods before their understanding is developed they will not be successful If children are introduced to compact methods before their understanding is developed they will not be successful

Division is mathematics where you get two numbers then you put one of the numbers into the other number and you write how many can go into that number. Then you multiply the number on top with the number on the side and you get the answer. Put it on the bottom and subtract it with the number in the middle. However many is left you put a ‘r’ on the top then the number by the ‘r’ that stands as the reminder. Emily
