SPAG Powerpoints
This document shows and explains our written calculation methods for maths. They are organised by number operations – Addition (+), Subtraction (-), Division (¸) and Multiplication (x).  Each section shows the progression of written calculation methods for each operation starting from simple methods and progressing to more advanced ones. Children will progress through the stages according to their mathematical knowledge and understanding rather than year group.
Many thanks to Rising stars who have kindly allowed us to make their new Mathematical Vocabulary ebook available to parents. This is a useful guide to the new mathematical vocabulary that the children will encounter in each year group.. Further free resources can be found at www.risingstars-uk.com
