In Thorpe Lea Primary School we follow Abacus and use the Abacus resources and textbooks within our lessons. These lessons are focused on developing the skills and understanding in Mathematics to help the students become strong Mathematicians.
There will also be a weekly tables test based on the focus times tables of the week which the children will be notified of in their homework.
It is important that all the students continue to practice their times tables and that will come up frequently throughout the year. We will also be focusing on addition and subtraction using formal method, dividing a 2-digit number by 3, 4 or 8, statistics and collecting data. This is another extremely busy half term in the build up to Christmas and I am extremely excited to get going again as I know the students will thoroughly enjoy what is in store.
