Visual Calculation Policy

Here you can find a brief overview of Parkfield's Visual Calculation Policy for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Each overview:

  • links to the end of year and key stage expectations set out in the 2014 National Curriculum.

  • includes the range of different methods expected in each year group.

  • gets progressively more difficult as you move across the page from left to right.

  • shows steady progression from Y1 – Y6 across addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

  • supports parents in understanding how a method works and how it should be set out.
