Maths

We recognise the importance of mathematics throughout each child’s everyday and future life. It enables children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space in the world around them. As well as securing positive attitudes and mathematical skills, we want our Maths Curriculum to inspire a ‘love of learning’ and enthusiasm for Maths that will stay with children throughout their lives.

   

Children will experience...

In order to secure quality and consistency of our maths curriculum, and our mastery approach of teaching, we have implemented Power Maths – a government-recommended, high-quality scheme. Power Maths provides a structured, rich curriculum, with a clear whole-school progression of skills, which meet the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum.

It is essential that children have a deep understanding of the most important elements that underpin the mathematics curriculum so that there is consistency and continuity as children move from one year group to the next. In order to meet our aims above and the requirements set out in the EYFS Framework and the National Curriculum, we will implement the following:

♦ Mathematics 'working walls' are in each classroom to provide key information and vocabulary with modelled examples to support learning

♦ Summative assessments take place at the end of a unit and half termly and planning is adjusted accordingly. Children’s attainment and progress is discussed by teachers and school leaders and, if appropriate progress is not made, support is immediate and steps provided. Children’s attainment and progress is discussed with parents/carers during Parent Information Meetings. 

♦ Daily fluency sessions, discrete from the maths objectives of the day, are taught using Number Sense/ Fluency in Five schemes. These skills sessions recap, rehearse and embed key number facts, times tables and arithmetic and calculation skills to aid retention and support fluency.  We are committed to ensuring that pupils secure their knowledge of Times Tables and related Divisional Facts by the end of Year 4. We use Times Table Rock Stars to enthuse the children in learning times tables, at home as well as in school. 

♦ Mathematics homework is provided on a weekly basis to help embed the week’s learning

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

We place a significant emphasis on developing a strong grounding in number – understanding that this is a necessary building block for children to excel in the subject. The two key Early Learning Goal’s for mathematics are: 

1. Number: Number composition, subitising, recall of bonds to 5 and 10 and doubling 

2. Numerical Pattern: Verbally count beyond 20, Compare quantities, explore and represent patterns 

Practitioners provide creative and engaging opportunities for children to ignite their curiosity and enthusiasm for the subject. Children are actively encouraged to use mathematical terminology within their understanding, with a focus on developing positive attitudes and interest in the subject.

   

Our children will become...

Prepared for their future in and outside of education so they can become successful in whatever they pursue. Our rich and broad mathematics curriculum aims to make the children enthusiastic about learning mathematics and gain an understanding of its importance in everyday life
