Parents and children are responding positively to the introduction of Doodle across Key Stage One and Two. 98% of parents surveyed said it was a, "helpful resource" to offer the children. Commenting, also, on how the features suppport children, the questions are at the right level, it motivates the children and the questions are engaging.

Thank you very much to the year 1 and 2 parents who attended my workshop on Key Stage 1 Arithmetic methods. We looked at the different strategies and resources used in class to support children's learning.

Thank you very much to the parents who attended my workshops on Key Stage 2 strategies. We worked through different methods that the children are taught at Ladbrooke. I look forward to meeting more parents at my workshops on Key Stage 1 strategies.

MATHS AT LADBROOKE

The National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all children:

• Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time,so that children have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately
• Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
• Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

At Ladbrooke, Maths is taught through blocked units of work. These blocks have been taken from the recommended White Rose scheme of work; our planning and lessons are in line with the materials produced alongside this guidance. We raise standards in Maths at Ladbrooke by enabling our children to develop confidence and perseverance through their lessons.
