Mathematics

The National Curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:

 

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics.

 

Please refer to the National Curriculum for expectations for each year group.

 

Children work through three phases - Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving.  This ensures that children become masters and are able to apply their knowledge to real life experiences in the future.  We use a number of Mastery schemes to inform our planning - White Rose Scheme.  Children spend time learning the vocabulary that provides the foundations for their mathematics learning.

 

Children are taught and learn their times tables.  All work towards beating the Super Heroes who are trained to protect them.  Certificates are presented weekly to those who have achieved a pass in the test belonging to the Super Hero in question - eg Batman guards the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.  Children are supported through songs that relate to timestables and also assemblies where tables are focussed upon.

Calculation strategies show progression through the year groups.  The document below is given to parents to explain the progression.
