Calculations Policy

At BSB Sanlitun, our Calculations Policy is in place to support pupils in understanding appropriate mental and written strategies.

  • EAL teaching

With an initial emphasis on mental calculation skills in Key Stage 1, leading onto formal written methods in Upper Key Stage 2, the Calculations Policy shows the progression from Year 1 through to Year 6 for all four operations.  Whilst this document has been organised by year group, it is important to recognise that all pupils develop their understanding in Maths differently and therefore pupils should work through a range of practical, mental and written activities to support their knowledge and understanding.
