What is Barvember? 

Bar Modelling is a useful tool for helping children visualise and then solve maths problems. Even some of the most complex problems can be seen much easier when represented visually.

Throughout November, we set daily challenges for the children to try.  Each attempt is one entry into a prize draw, where there are KS1 and KS2 prizes up for grabs!

The answers to each problem are displayed on our Barvember board in school the following day.

This year's winners were: 

KS1 - Arthur Miller and Natalia Kuspa

KS2 - Elise Dixon, Evie Cuthbertson, Max Burrows and Adam Ghani

White Rose planning

At Gledhow we follow the White Rose hub planning. Below are the schemes of learning for each year group so you can see what your child will be doing in class. 




Calculation policy

Here is our calculation policy, where you can see the different methods used in each year group for the children to secure the basic 4 operations. 

Our calculation policy uses the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach. In November we held a information evening to explain the approach and show you how we use concrete maths equipment through school. 

Times Tables

By Year 4, children should be able to recall their multiplication facts up to 12 x 12. To help them develop these skills, children can log on to www.ttrockstars.com using their username and password. On Times Table Rockstars, pupils can practice their tables. They are then able to improve their Rock Speed and climb the Rockstar ranks! The online games reward children with virtual coins for each correct answer, which they enjoy spending on upgrading their personal rock avatar.
