As you can see Amelia has been working hard to use a numberline to support her addition work.

Here is a piece of Melissa's work- she is beginning to use column addition

You can see that Amelia has moved on from using the numberline and is using column to calculate more complex addition sums.  

Above is a great example from Gracie of using a numberline for subtraction

Have a look at this excellent example of column subtraction from Brianna.

Here is Liam's work using grid method multiplication. You can see that he has clearly set out his work and used column addition to complete the sum.

Here Abbi has demonstrated that you can use the grid method to even multiply decimals!


Here is Lorenzo's example of how to use chunking at a basic level to solve division problems

Here is Molly's maths work- she is using chunking to solve division problems which also involve remainders
