Coffee and Calculations

We would just like to thank everyone that came and supported the coffee and calculations morning. We hope you found it useful.

As promised you can download the PDF containing the useful websites and free 'Apps' that you can help with learning at home. Any questions please feel free to talk to Mr Sandy.


Coffee and Calculations morning 

Dear Parent/Carer,

Calculations are just one part of maths at Lacey Gardens but one which is important to help your child have a good understanding of number and the ability to use maths in everyday life.

The methods that we use in school may be very different to the methods you were taught and this may cause confusion for you and your children when they ask for help at home. Knowing the different methods in our Calculation Policy will help you to help your children.

As Maths Subject Leader, I would like to invite you to a ‘Coffee and Calculations’ morning on Friday 29th June at 9:45am which will outline the different methods used for calculations throughout the school, showing the progression from Year 3 through to Year 6. You will have the opportunity to see the different methods in action and to try them out for yourself, progressing through the different methods and stages for different operations. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have concerning calculations or other areas of Maths at Lacey Gardens.

 I look forward to seeing you at the ‘coffee and calculation’ morning.

Many Thanks

Mr. S. Sandy
