We are going to be "flipping" the way that we are going to be approaching some of our mathematics homework this year.  To help learners and families better understand how we learn mathematics, I am going to be posting some videos, explaining written methods, on the blog.  This means that you can watch, pause, rewind and practise at home before we apply these skills in class.

If a computer is not available at home, time will be available for all learners to use the ICT suite to access the videos.

Mr Jones, please can we have a chat in school about the number of levels there are.

Remember that we discussed in school that you are not expected to achieve all of the layered targets, concentrate on the one you wish to learn.

That's right- you need to start on the level you can't yet do and try to learn that one properly, inside out. Then, if you can do that and the follow-up activities Mr Jones sets for you in class then we know (good) learning has taken place!
