Hi All, I am just starting to get a head start with planning for September. I am an NQT and have been given a lovely year 3 class. Week 2 I have to teach mental calculations... When I was in primary school all that I remember was doing mental maths tests and that was it really. After looking at resources in TES, am I right in thinking I can go through using number lines etc.? and using these as jottings and teaching the children methods to be able to calculate problems mentally or have I gone wrong? Any help would be very greatly appreciated! Thanks.
