Barrow Hedges Primary School

Arithmetic

In this section...

At Barrow Hedges, we want to ensure that pupils are equipped with strong arithmetical foundations to support them in becoming confident mathematicians. Three times a week, time is allocated to arithmetic, where children are taught key arithmetic skills for their year group, outlined in the attachment 'End of year fluency expectations by year group' below. Generic arithmetic skills, such as choosing an appropriate mental or written strategy for a calculation, using estimating and rounding to support calculations, and checking answers for accuracy and reasonableness are also taught during these sessions.

In addition to this, each Friday, children in Years 2 to 6 are tested on their arithmetic skills to provide practice in working within a time frame. These are ideal for regular arithmetic skills as well as providing a context for children to demonstrate the skills covered in their arithmetic sessions.
