Learning in Maths provides real-life contexts and opportunities for children to try out ideas and solve problems through practical numeracy lessons, activities and games. There is a focus on providing a Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach with children using concrete materials and pictures to reinforce their understanding of number sentences and equations.

In each year group, children are taught a thorough understanding of basic skills, according to year group expectations, in order to ensure progression as they move through the school. There is also a strong focus on timestables with a target of all timestables (to x12) being known by the end of Year 4.  A solid grasp of mental calculation strategies is essential to support the understanding of more formal written methods taught later.

 

ICT is also an integral part of mathematics in school using Mathletics and Education City to support lesson objectives and the acquisition of basic skills. 

 

Children will also use Numicon to help them internalise key facts such as number bonds and develop their understanding of the four operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Please ask your class teacher for more information on Numicon, as it can be purchased to support your child's learning. They will also learn important mathematical skills through the use of other technology, such as the Roamer Robot to help in lessons on shape, angles and positional language. Although there are regular Maths information evenings, please feel free to request a meeting should you feel it would be beneficial for you and your child.
