Mrs. McBrien ran a KS2 Addition and Subtraction workshop for parents and carers who wanted to learn more about the calculation strategies which are taught in KS2.
We went through the progression in strategies for addition and subtraction, showing how their children work towards carrying out and understanding the formal methods for both these operations.
Parents had a go themselves and had the opportunity to ask questions. Once they had a go at using the different strategies, they were joined by their child for some ‘competitive’ addition and subtraction games.
It was a very successful morning and a big thank you must go to the parents who joined in all the activities with real enthusiasm.
Look out for further maths workshops in the near future.
If you were unable to make the workshop, a copy of the PowerPoint is below and a copy of the Calculation Policy is on the website.
