Mathematics

During the planning, teaching and organisation of mathematics we aim to:

Develop numerate children who can:

  • Have a sense of the size of a number and where it fits into the number system
  • Know by heart number facts (number bonds, times tables, doubles and halves)
  • Use what they know by heart to figure out answers mentally
  • Calculate accurately, both mentally and with pencil and paper, drawing on a range of calculation strategies
  • Make sense of number problems, including non routine problems and recognise the operations needed to solve them
  • Have strategies for checking their answers to judge whether they are reasonable
  • Explain their methods and reasoning using correct mathematical terms
  • Suggest suitable units for measuring, and make sensible estimates
  • Explain and make predictions from the numbers in graphs, charts and tables
  • Take pleasure in solving problems, puzzles and "real-life" mathematical activities

 

To achieve this we will provide a wide and varied curriculum in mathematics, showing differentiation in pace and method of delivery in such a way as to make the whole content accessible to each child.

 

All lessons broadly follow the guidelines of the 2014 Primary Mathematics Curriculum.

All children will be entitled to a daily lesson of approximately 45 minutes devoted to mathematics.

Most lessons will follow a similar pattern:

  • Whole class work 
  • Individual or group work
  • Plenary session

The Y6 children made wonderful maths games and came to teach the Y1 children how to play the games. Lots of team work and maths skills were involved.
