Maths videos

To help you support your children with their maths homework, we have created a number of 'How to' videos that will show you how we teach certain mathematical methods here at St Andrew's. Each year group has chosen operations and calculation types that children from that year group may need extra help with and produced a guide on how to go about finding the right answer.
