Pupils are taught to use concrete apparatus from EYFS, for instance, when they are introduced to number tracks and Numicon. Base 10 apparatus is used to support the calculation policy. All classes have core apparatus which children are expected to access independently. Apparatus is encouraged for the more able mathematicians to use flexibly and to demonstrate understanding of concepts across a range of resources.
To support the practice of mental calculation strategies, pupils in KS1 use Numbots and pupils in KS2 use Times Tables Rock Stars. Every pupil has their own log-in. Please let the school office know if your child has forgotten their log-in details.
