Maths is taught through the programmes of study from the revised National Curriculum (July 2014) All children from Reception to Year 6, follow key objectives for each year group. The Early Learning Goals implemented in the Reception year, support the development of mathematical thinking and provide a firm foundation for subsequent learning. Maths for children in Years 1 to 6 now focuses strongly on developing reasoning skills and teachers challenge the children through problem solving activities.
We have, within the past academic year, started using the White Rose scheme to plan and assess effectively. There is also a whole school weekly times table test which the children respond to very well. Children are challenged to work through the Mathletics computer progamme and this is developing some very healthy competition across school as children strive to achieve the most points which is then celebrated in our Monday Assembly.
We offer workshops for parents to explain our maths curriculum and methods.
