Year 5 Maths – Place Value (Identify The Value of Digits)
Year 5 Maths – Formal Written methods
When teaching formal written methods for maths, children are first taught through the use of concrete resources (such as manipulating counters, multi-link cubes etc.) and then progress onto pictorial representations (such as drawing counters). These tutorials model the abstract approach to teaching formal written methods, in which the concrete and pictorial supports are removed and the children focus solely on the numbers.
If children struggle with these tutorials, please keep in mind that they may benefit from further concrete or pictorial representations before progressing onto these formal written methods. The children’s class teachers will be aware of this and will be ensuring appropriate provision for these children.
