We have also put together a number of videos which show the maths teaching strategies we use in school. These videos could also be used by Year 6 pupils as a revision aid as there are examples to try after each tutorial. If you feel there is certain area of maths or a strategy missing, please let us know by emailing Mr Smith csmith@cleves.co.uk.

We have arranged the videos under the headings below. Please click on each link to be taken to the video tutorial
