Maths

The areas within mathematics are:

Number and Place value; Addition and Subtraction; Multiplication and Division; Fractions (which includes Decimals and Percentages in Upper Key Stage 2); Measurement; Geometry (Properties of Shape); Geometry (Position and Direction) and Statistics.  Year 6 also include Ratio and Proportion and Algebra.

Within the school we recognise the importance of talking through maths problems and encourage  children in their problem solving skills and ability to talk about their learning.

As a school, we are broadly following the White Rose Maths yearly scheme of work.

Due to the nature of having some mixed classes and part time teaching staff, every effort is made for the continuum of coverage although it may occasionally deviate from the plan. Teachers draw on a wide range of resources, including Hamilton Trust and Classroom Secrets. Children use a range of resources to access their learning, including the use of tools such as Maths Shed to aid fluency. Many classes test tables in school as this is a crucial foundation of the subject. At the end of every term, children in years 1-6 conduct in-class assessments to ascertain gaps and inform teaching practise. Theoretically, this enables children to access quick support and addressing of any misconceptions prior to moving on to new content. 

Why use White Rose?

The White Rose scheme really develops this concept of 'maths mastery' whereby children can deepen their understanding of learning areas as opposed to 'surface learning'. With this deeper learning in place, children can then progress onto more complex problems, developing their reasoning and problem solving abilities which are crucial for life- long learning. 

What is 'Maths Mastery'? 

"Mastering maths means pupils acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject. The phrase ‘teaching for mastery’ describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering maths. Achieving mastery means acquiring a solid enough understanding of the maths that’s been taught to enable pupils to move on to more advanced material."

 Maths Support for Parents

 

Here are some virtual resources for parents to use:

 

National Numeracy are a charity that was established in 2012 to help raise the levels of numeracy in the UK amongst both adults and children. Surprisingly, the 2011 'Skills for Life' report that was commissioned by the Government discovered that 49% of adults in the UK have the numeracy levels expected of primary school children.

The website link below offers a way for adults to test and improve their own numeracy skills from the comfort of their own home for free and in complete confidence. Please note that this is to support adults only and is free tool that parents can access if they so wish.
