Information for Parents

Calculation Methods

As children progress through the school, the methods for calculation move from being very practical and visual to compact and efficient.

We have created new calculation booklets for each Year Group in conjunction with the New Curriculum. Please clink on the links below to access them.

Rainbow Maths

We have a strong focus on mental mathematics as this is essential for the success of other calculation work. Rainbow maths begins with addition and subtraction, progressing to multiplication and division, then fractions and decimals. The purpose of Rainbow Maths is to improve the children’s rapid recall of the four number operations (+, -, x, ÷). Below is a table of the content.

Beginning in Year 2, each child spends 4 minutes each day working through their colour card. When a child can successfully answer all 50 questions correctly within 4 minutes every day for a week, they can then move up a colour. Sample pages are available below. If you would like a copy of the colour your child is working on, please see your child's class teacher, who will be happy to provide one for you.
