Number and Calculation: Getting the best results
Drawing on her vast experience as a teacher, mathematics advisor and specialist subject HMI with Ofsted (to name but a few of her many influential roles) Lynn has a passion for maths and the capacity for all primary pupils to be successful.
Lynn’s report provides an overview of Ofsted’s two recent maths papers Good practice in Primary Mathematics and Mathematics: made to measure drawing on the successes of 20 schools, to help you reflect on your school’s approach to teaching number and calculation.
With a focus on problem-solving and reasoning, calculation policies and the debate around written methods, the action points and key question panels featured in the report will help you to assess the teaching of calculation in your school.
We hope that having read and worked with the tools and checklists featured, we can help you get the best possible results in maths for your children.
