Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope this message finds you well. The UKS2 team wanted to share with you our calculation strategies that the children learn and use on a daily basis here at Ringmer Primary School. In the absence of being able to come in for a parent workshop, some of our very own mathematical experts have been able to film a walk-through guide to calculation in UKS2. If your child is in Y6, it is vital that they practise these methods at every opportunity with SATs just around the corner. If your child is in Y5, they will be using most of these methods already and it will be very important for them to master them for their time in UKS2.
These videos can also be found on our Google Classroom pages for Sunfish, Manta Rays and Orcas.
A big thank you to the children involved in filming these and as always, please ask your child’s class teacher, or me, if you have any questions.
Mr White, Miss Kelly and Miss Stone
